Title: Parallelism and Prosody in the Processing of Ellipsis Sentences
Written By: Katy Carlson
Series Title: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics

This thesis investigates the processes of ellipsis sentences, focusing on the questions: (i) Are ellipsis sentences processed using special routines employed only for ellipsis or are they processed using the same principles needed for unelided sentences? (ii) Does parallelism influence sentence processing? If so, what kinds of similarities matter?
