In linguistics, ellipsis (from the Greek: ἔλλειψις, élleipsis, "omission") or an elliptical construction is the omission from a clause of one or more words that are nevertheless understood in the context of the remaining elements.

Abstract. This monograph presents a theory of ellipsis licensing in terms of Agree and applies it to several elliptical phenomena in both English and Dutch.

The author makes two main claims: The head selecting the ellipsis site is checked against the head licensing ellipsis in order for Cited by:   This handbook is the first volume to provide a comprehensive, in-depth, and balanced discussion of ellipsis phenomena, whereby the meaning of an utterance is richer than would be expected based solely on its linguistic form.

Natural language abounds in these apparently incomplete expressions, such as I laughed but Ed didn't, in which the final portion of the sentence, the verb. The fact that ellipsis cannot just occur anywhere is related to the idea of licensing: ellipsis is only possible in certain configurations in which it is licensed by particular syntactic material.

The syntactic theory of licensing however has great limitations and cannot predict the intra- and inter-language differences that are found.

xii+ (14) a. Ellipsis is licensed via an Agree relation between an ellipsis feature [E] and the ellipsis licensing head. Ellipsis occurs in the course of the derivation, as soon as the licensing head is merged.

At this point the ellipsis site becomes inaccessible for further syntactic operations, and vocabulary insertion at PF is blocked. In grammar and rhetoric, an ellipsis is the omission of one or more words, which must be supplied by the listener or reader for the sentence to be understood.

It is also the name of the punctuation mark (" ") used to show the location of missing words in a direct quote. This mark can also be used to indicate a long pause or a speech trailing off.

The talk argues for an analysis of ellipsis that combines:(i) the licensing of the antecedent-anaphor relationship in elided structures via mutually entailing Givenness, modulo focus (RoothMerchant ) with (ii) a syntax based phase driven account of ellipsis (RouveretChungBoskovic ).

The connection between the syntax and semantics of ellipsis will be the observation. This book develops a grammar model which accounts for discourse ellipses in spoken Norwegian.

This is a previously unexplored area, which has also been sparsely investigated internationally. The model takes an exoskeletal view, where lexical items are inserted late and where syntactic structure is generated independently of lexical items. Two major questions are addressed.

of VP-ellipsis, in which T licenses ellipsis of its complement, is correct. Cases in which a smaller constituent is elided could (as with have and being) be attributed to p-word integrity. Selected References: Aelbrecht, L. The Syntactic Licensing of Ellipsis link.

van Craenenbroeck, J. VP Ellipsis link. Ito, J & Mester, A. The ellipsis is also called a suspension point, points of ellipsis, periods of ellipsis, or (colloquially) "dot-dot-dot". Depending on their context and placement in a sentence, ellipses can indicate an unfinished thought, a leading statement, a slight pause, an echoing voice, or a nervous or awkward silence.

Aposiopesis is the use of an ellipsis to trail off into silence—for example: "But. This book develops a grammar model for discourse ellipses in spoken Norwegian. Two major questions are addressed. Firstly, is there active syntactic structure in the ellipsis site.

Secondly, how are discourse ellipses licensed. It is argued that both structural and semantic restrictions are required to account for the empirical patterns.

ellipsis, as well as the locality conditions on the relation between these structures and the elided parts. Theoretical studies on ellipsis have centered on the first two questions, and the third question, which concerns the syntactic licensing on ellipsis, has not attracted as much attention as the questions about the syntax.

I know which book Mag read, by noting that the syntactic licensing condition on VPE seems to be more. This account thus predicts that the ellipsis site contains syntactic information. This book elaborates a theory of ellipsis that sheds new light on a well-known phenomenon, bringing it under the aegis of general and universal principles.

Lobeck argues that ellipted categories in IP (VP Ellipsis), DP (N' Ellipsis), and CP (Sluicing) are empty, non-referential pronominals, subject to the same licensing and identification conditions as referential pro.

The volume explores the nature of ellipsis by examining the interfaces of syntax with semantics, phonology, and discourse. Schwabe, Kerstin, and Ning Zhang, eds. Ellipsis in conjunction.

The Syntax of Ellipsis investigates a number of elliptical constructions found in Dutch dialects within the framework of the Minimalist Program.

Using two case studies, Van Craenenbroeck argues that both the PF-deletion and the pro-theory of ellipsis are needed to account for the full range of elliptical phenomena attested in natural language. Materials and Design. We created 40 VPE test sentences, such as in (3).

The locksmith photographed the babysitter and the friendly 1 neighbor did 2 too, according to 3 the clumsy plumber. Sentence (3) contains an antecedent clause (The locksmith photographed the babysitter) and an ellipsis clause (the friendly neighbor did too, according).There is an elided VP in the second clause.

This book explores licensing theory and its implications for a theory of syntax. It brings together a series of new papers which focus on developing a constrained set of licensing mechanisms relating elements in a syntactic representation, and on the different properties of lexical and functional heads as licenses of complements and specifiers.

These facts, together with others from the previous literature, are compatible with a theory of ellipsis that posits an identity relation stated over abstract syntactic structures: mere semantic.

This chapter discusses the phenomenon of predicate ellipsis, which covers several types of ellipsis targeting the clausal predicate. The best-known type is VP-ellipsis, but there is also pseudogapping, and two lesser-known types, namely Modal Complement Ellipsis and British English do.

For each type the basic properties and main research questions are discussed. It contains three chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the syntactic and semantic properties of coordinate structures and their constituting elements, that is, the coordinators and the coordinands they link.

Chapter 2 discusses the types of ellipsis known as conjunction reduction. syntactic operations in general cannot be applied to a non-constituent or a part of a word as in (1).1 On the other hand, ellipsis phenomena requiring a linguistic antecedent are not derived by phonological deletion (Merchant ).

(2) shows that the adjunct island violation, in which the wh-phrase moves out of the conditional clause, can. The second generalization concernsthe syntactic component involved in ellipsis licensing. It is suggested that ellipsis types with the distributional features of verb-phrase ellipsis are licensed by interpretable features of the licensing head.

The two generalizations are intertwined with one another and derive a series of further legitimate.

He is the author of The Syntax of Ellipsis (OUP) and general editor of the journal Linguistic Variation (John Benjamins). His research interests include ellipsis. This chapter discusses the plausibility of syntactic ellipsis in abstraction, surveying data-based arguments both for and against an ellipsis account (from case assignment, binding phenomena, licensing conditions, etc.).

It is shown that the evidence against syntactic ellipsis heavily outweighs the evidence for it. It is argued that sub-sentential speech acts cannot be explained away as really.Aelbrecht, Lobke.
