This chapter examines the definite article in English, analysing it as a range assigner not only to d, the node that heads DP, but also to #, the node that heads #P (Quantity Phrase, aka Number Phrase). It also discusses range assignment by heads vs. range assignment by specifiers, together with the different structural predictions made by such assignment.

Keywords:   definite article, English, range assigner, Quantity Phrase, heads, specifiers
