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.
