This is the second of a two-volume selection of refereed and revised papers, originally presented at the special workshop of the international conference From NP to DP at the University of Antwerp. Reflecting the stage of current research with respect to the expression of possession in the noun phrase, it focusses on issues such as alienable and inalienable possession, internal and external syntax of possessors, interaction between determiners and possessors, interpretation of possessors and typology of possessors. The papers, preceded by an up-to-date overview and discussion of the most important studies in the field, provide an excellent basis for comparative analyses of possession in the noun phrase between a large number of languages.

Table of Contents
“I was very excited at the prospect of receiving and reading this two-volume study of NP's and DP's, and I was not disappointed. The chapters are excellent. The editors have done a great job. I heartily recommend these two volumes to anyone who is interested in the nominal domain.”
“Overall, this is a wonderful bunch of papers that represents a valuable portion of the rich research on possessive structures. Reading them has been not only an enlightening experience, but also a very enjoyable one.”
