More work on Determiners

In addition to the analysis described in Chapter 19, there remains work to be done to complete the analysis of determiner constructions in English.25.2 Although constructions such as determiner coordination are easily handled if overgeneration is allowed, blocking sequences such as one and some while allowing sequences such as five or ten still remains to be worked out. There are still a handful of determiners that are not currently handled by our system. We do not have an analysis to handle most, such, certain, other and own25.3. In addition, there is a set of lexical items that we consider adjectives (enough, less, more and much) that have the property that they cannot cooccur with determiners. We feel that a complete analysis of determiners should be able to account for this phenomenon, as well.
