'Natural Language Ontology'. To appear in R. Bliss/J. Miller (eds.): Routledge Handbook of Metametaphyics

Abstract: This paper gives an outline of natural language ontology as a subdiscipline of both linguistics and philosophy. It also argues that part of the constructional ontology reflected in natural language is in significant respects on a par with syntax (on the generative view) and should be studied as such.
