Chapter Summary

In this introduction, we provide a general overview of the semantic and syntactic properties of pseudo-incorporation, which is intended to serve as a basis for accessing the papers in this volume. Given that pseudo-incorporation shares semantic properties with other phenomena, in particular morphosyntactic and semantic incorporation and weak referentiality (expressed by bare plurals and weak definites), we will also present the main characteristics of these phenomena. Additionally, we point out issues in the study of pseudo-incorporation that still need to be resolved, such as, for instance, the definitional debate as to what kind of empirical facts fall under the umbrella of pseudo-incorporation. We conclude by providing short summaries of each contribution to this volume.
