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 characterizes 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
cutting-edge volume will be of key interest to anyone working on
theoretical syntax, semantics and psycholinguistics.
