Gender and Noun Classification

Éric Mathieu

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 discusses the latest relevant concepts needed for a good understanding of gender, noun classification, and also number, in current theoretical linguistics. The structure of the volume is presented: it is divided into three parts, each addressing a particular theoretical question that arises when we study gender and noun classification in context. This chapter demonstrates how each of the chapters in the volume speaks to these theoretical questions: (1) What is the role of gender? (2) Where is gender located in the nominal spine? (3) How is gender interpreted?

Keywords:   gender, noun classification, classes, number, agreement, phi-features, nominal phrase, syntax, semantics, morphology
