Distributional models of semantics cap- ture word meaning very effectively, and they have been recently extended to ac- count for compositionally-obtained rep- resentations of phrases made of content words. We explore whether compositional distributional semantic models can also handle a construction in which grammat- ical terms play a crucial role, namely de- terminer phrases (DPs). We introduce a new publicly available dataset to test dis- tributional representations of DPs, and we evaluate state-of-the-art models on this set.
