Abstract:
			
The Interfaces: Deriving and Interpreting Omitted Structures is a
collection of never-before-published papers that explore the nature of
the interfaces of syntax with semantics, phonology, and discourse. The
papers investigate the various ways in which elliptical structures are
related to these interfaces. As such, they not only make a valuable
contribution to generative linguistic research but, more generally,
help to deepen our understanding of the relation between form and
meaning in natural language.  In the book's introductory chapter, the
editors address general issues related to current work on ellipsis and
the syntax/semantics, syntax/phonology and syntax/discourse
interfaces. The rest of the book is organized into three parts. The
first examines PF-deletion accounts of elliptical structures; the
second investigates these structures from the perspective of the
syntax/semantic interface; and the third explores these from a
perspective that concentrates on the relation between semantics and
focus and discourse structure. Together the papers collected in this
volume offer a convincing demonstration of the value of collaborative
research on the 'interfaces'.
