@TECHREPORT{AICPub546:1987, AUTHOR={Hobbs, Jerry R.}, TITLE={Implicature and Definite Reference}, ADDRESS={333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025}, INSTITUTION={AI Center, SRI International}, MONTH={Mar}, NUMBER={419}, YEAR={1987}, KEYWORDS={Natural Language!Implicature, Natural Language!Definite Reference}, ABSTRACT={An account is given of the appropriateness conditions for definite reference, in terms of the operations of inference and implicature. It is shown how a number of problematic cases noticed by Hawkins can be explained in this framework. In addition, the use of unresolvable definite noun phrases as a literary device and definite noun phrases with nonrestrictive material can be explained within the same framework.} }
