Specifiers are represented, in UNL, by specifying attributes or by the relation "mod", depending on the type of specification.

Specifying attributes

Specifying attributes are used in case of general specification (normally conveyed by determiners):

Relation mod

The relation "mod" is used to express more specific specifiers:

mod(head, specifier)


  • the book = book.@def
  • that book = book.@distal
  • each book = book.@each
  • every book = book.@every
  • other book = book.@other
  • this book = book.@proximal
  • same book = book.@same
  • a book = book.@indef
  • record book = mod(book, record)
  • new book = mod(book, new)
