Pseudogapping and Ellipsis

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the empirical data which form the basis for the discussion throughout the book. The examples provided mainly illustrate elliptical structures occurring in the lower part of the clause such as Pseudogapping, and VP Ellipsis, but also include Sluicing, Fragment answers, Gapping, Stripping (Bare Argument Ellipsis), and NP Ellipsis. The majority of data are taken from English, with previously unpublished Pseudogapping examples. The main appeal of this chapter, however, is the section on cross-linguistic data, which contains previously unpublished Pseudogapping examples from the Scandinavian languages (Danish, Norwegian, and Icelandic, in particular), as well as examples of constructions similar to Pseudogapping in French and Portuguese. For each Ellipsis phenomenon described, a short summary of its distinctive properties is given.

Keywords:   Pseudogapping, VP Ellipsis, empirical data, Sluicing, Fragments, Gapping, NP Ellipsis, Pseudogapping in Scandinavian
