By Orin Hargraves

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Ellipsis in Conjunction
Edited By: Kerstin Schwabe
Niina Ning Zhang
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten. Band 418

The papers of the volume mirror the ongoing debate on approaches towards two related topics: conjunction and ellipsis. The major issues are the syntactic relationship between the conjuncts, the syntactic category of the conjunction words, the size of the conjuncts, the syntactic and semantic status of the null elements, and semantic and information structural restrictions. A wide range of facts from various languages are explored in relation to phrasal coordination, Gapping, Pseudogapping, VP-ellipsis, and Sluicing. Contributors: Cedric Boeckx, Josi Camacho, Ricardo Etxepare, Kleanthes K. Grohmann, Kyle Johnson, David Lightfoot, Alan Munn, Satoshi Oku, Maribel Romero, Kerstin Schwabe, John te Velde, Susanne Winkler, Ning Zhang
