This volume explores the implications of cross-linguistic structures
in simultaneous bilingualism. It aims to find cognitive explanations
for the presence or absence of cross-linguistic structures that go
beyond the debate of 'one system or two'. The contributors present
syntactic, morphological and phonological features that are found in
bilingual children, but are untypical of monolingual development, and
discuss pertinent methodological issues. The orientation of this
volume stands out from competing volumes in the field in that the
focus is not limited to similarities between monolingual and bilingual
first language acquisition. The volume will be of interest to
researchers in the field of bilingualism and primary language
acquisition, language theorists, and professionals working with
bilingual populations.

Message 2: Syntax: Right Node Raising and Gapping by K. Hartmann

Right Node Raising and Gapping.
Interface conditions on prosodic deletion.

This book investigates two elliptical coordinations in German, Right
Node Raising and Gapping. Ellipsis in both constructions is claimed to
be the result of a phonological process which is conditioned by
prosodic and focus semantic constraints. It is convincingly argued
that Right Node Raising cannot involve raising to the right periphery:
The alleged movement freely violates any of the well-known
restrictions on syntactic movement and it does not alter the scope
relations within the coordination. Gapping in contrast is more
sensitive to syntactic conditions in that its remnants must be major
syntactic constituents. The author carefully examines the close
connection between focus and ellipsis in the two constructions. A
considered discussion of focus structure demonstrates that the
conjuncts are informationally dependent on each other. This
co-dependence is also reflected in their particular intonational
contour which is argued to be responsible for ellipsis in
coordination.
