Subtitle: Eine sprachtypologisch-kontrastive Analyse
Written By: Krisztina Molnár
Series Title: DE GRUYTER AKADEMIE FORSCHUNG Konvergenz und Divergenz 2

Starting from the semantic-pragmatic functions of the determinative, the author describes its use in these two languages as an expression of definiteness, indefiniteness, and genericity.
