Abney is one of the representatives of the determinant phrase. According to him, the combination of article (+ adjective) + noun or a single pronoun forms a determinant phrase.
According to this, for example, a phrase like the little doll as a whole is not a noun phrase (NP), consisting of an article ( die ), an adjective ( small ) and a head noun ( doll ), but represents a determinant phrase (DP) that goes into a Determinans (D) as head and a noun phrase (NP) as complement are to be broken down:
[ DP [ D die] [ NP little doll]]
A personal pronoun like me would then be analyzed as:
[ DP [ D i]]
