Ellipsis in Conjunction

Edited by Kerstin Schwabe and Ning Zhang
VIII, 269 Seiten. Kart. ca. DM 146.-. ISBN 3-484-30418-9

Max Niemeyer Verlag

The papers of the volume mirror the ongoing debate on approaches
towards two related topics: conjunction and ellipsis. The major issues
are the syntactic relationship between the conjuncts, the syntactic
category of the conjunction words, the size of the conjuncts, the
syntactic and semantic status of the null elements, and semantic and
information structural restrictions. A wide range of facts from
various languages are explored in relation to phrasal coordination,
Gapping, Pseudogapping, VP-ellipsis, and Sluicing.
