The Syntax of Ellipsis

Evidence from Dutch Dialects

Jeroen Van Craenenbroeck

Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

  • provides new data from language varieties that have so far not been featured in the linguistic debate on ellipsis
  • introduces and analyzes four previously undiscussed syntactic constructions
  • shows that the choice between two of the most prominent theories of ellipsis is not an either/or, but that both theories are needed to account for all the relevant data
