Indefinite proper names and quantification over manifestations
AbstractStarting from the observation that in German proper names can be determined by the indefinite article without apparently shedding their original referent, this paper presents a range of “non- standard” uses of proper names, among them one we will call the “manifestation use”. It will be suggested that certain occurrences of proper names cannot be adequately analysed without assuming manifestations as a basic unit of quantification.
