Meeting Description:

In the line of a previous meeting organized in 2011, the present
conference funded by the French TUL CNRS federation aims at providing
a comprehensive view of recent advances on ellipsis by comparing
different constructions (such as VP ellipsis, Right Node Raising and
Gapping), different languages (such as English, Czech, Romanian and
Mandarin Chinese) and different theoretical perspectives (such as
Minimalism and HPSG).
