Subject: Ellipisis in English

For Query: 12.561

I wish to thank those who responded to my query into documentation of
ellipsis in language. I wish to thank Til Turner who suggested _English
Grammar_ by Rodney Hueeleson. On pages 204-5 he defines two types of
ellipsis: *bound* and *free* with examples of both.

My gratitude to Peter Menzel who made several suggestions on clarifying
the issue.

Thanks also to Kevin Johnson who offered suggestions on how to better
define the topic since it may be thought to be wider than I thought it
may be.

I located a Dissertation by Bernhard Schwarz titled _Topics in
Ellipsis-. He discusses the subject for both English and German.

Finally, I notices a Job posting by Microsoft for Summer Intern on the
same subject.
