Many languages exhibit “presentatives”, sentences with a unique sentential form associated

with the function of bringing an entity (or set of entities, or an event) to the attention of an interlocutor

(or “presentee”):

 

(1)    a. Here’s a slice of pizza (all speakers of American English)

        b. Ecco una fetta di pizza. (Italian)
