This paper proposes a record type theoretical account of
cases of copredication which have motivated the introduction of dot
types in the Generative Lexicon. Using record
types not only gives us a simple and intuitive account of dot types
but also makes an important connection between copredication and the
use of hypothetical contexts in a record type theoretic analysis of
dynamic generalized quantifiers. It also allows us to preserve the
intuitive feature structure based accounts of lexical analysis proposed in Pustejovsky's original work on the Generative Lexicon and
gives us a way of treating certain kinds of lexical innovation as
coercions involving the addition or removal of fields in record types.
