Abstract:

Ellipsis occurs when certain portions of a sentence are not spoken - for
example 'Mary has read more books than Bill has [read books]' and 'Jack
called, but I don't know where [he called] from'. These constructions
interest linguists because the meaning of the sentence cannot be traced
directly to the words it contains. This volume brings together a team of
leading syntacticians to propose new and original solutions to some key
questions in the study of ellipsis: What characterises ellipsis? Under what
conditions is it possible? What kinds of meanings are allowed to go
unspoken? Drawing on a variety of authentic constructions, they examine
ellipsis in the context of a range of syntactic phenomena such as binding,
raising, anaphora, movement and scrambling. Making significant progress
towards solving some central problems in syntactic theory, this volume will
be of key interest to anyone working on theoretical syntax, semantics and
psycholinguistics.
