I argue that they typically contribute not-at-issue content in the sense of Potts 2005 and Simons et al. 2010, in particular when they occur with adnominal if -clauses, such as Alex’s spouse, if they ever got married or some soccer player, if that’s what he is. I propose a multidimensional analysis, proposing that on the truth-conditional dimension, they simply refer to an individual, while on the non-truth-conditional dimension, they have a modal meaning.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Referentially used definite descriptions can be conditionalized</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
