 Abstract:
 "This paper examines the behaviour of definite and indefinite NPs in the sentence in Welsh, and compares the distribution patterns they display with those found in the case of NPs which are place-names. It argues that if clear generalizations are to be captured, it will be necessary to accept that not only syntactic, but also semantic factors must be taken into account. The grammatical patterns found in Welsh do not operate in a vacuum, and must take account of the reality which is being described."
