Résumé :

The systematic connection between English mass and count nouns has long been known. Those working
within lexical semantics have frequently cited such systematic connections as instances which are susceptible
of treatment by so-called lexical rules (Leech 1981), lexical inference rules (Ostler and Atkins 1991), or
subtype coercion (Pustejovsky 1995). This paper has three aims: to present the principal morphological and
semantic properties of the mass count distinction; to formulate, in terms of lexical (inference) rules, the
empirical generalizations pertinent to systematic connection between English mass and count nouns; and to
show how such rules fit with a syntactic and semantic theory of English common noun phrases.
