The Syntax of Ellipsis

Evidence from Dutch Dialects

Jeroen Van Craenenbroeck

Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

The Syntax of Ellipsis provides an in-depth analysis of a number of previously undiscussed elliptical constructions in Dutch dialects, and explores their consequences for the theory of ellipsis. 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.
