On October 21st, and 22nd, 2013, during the Conference “On Referentiality”, which took place in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, the papers that compose this issue were first discussed. The conference is one of the activities of the Cooperation Project CAPES-NUFFIC, between universities in Brazil and the Netherlands, entitled The Effects of Modification on Referentiality (CAPES process number 040/12). The aim of this project is to investigate the effects of modification in the licensing and blocking of nominal phrases. The project’s main hypothesis is that “modification” introduces a feature of referentiality, precisely the notion the conference aimed at clarifying.
