Bare noun phrase

From Teflpedia

A bare noun phrase is a noun phrase that lacks a determiner slot. These are found in English and related languages.

If the determiner slot is empty, then it’s not a bare NP.

The test for this is whether a determiner could be added to the text while retaining well-formedness.

A determined noun phrase consist of a determiner + bare NP.
