Title: Ellipsis and Focus in Generative Grammar
Written By: Susanne Winkler
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-3110186012-1&l=E
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar 81
Description:

Covering linguistic research on empty categories over more than three
decades, this monograph presents the result of an in-depth syntactic and
focus-theoretical investigation of ellipsis in generative grammar. The
phenomenon of ellipsis most generally refers to the omission of linguistic
material, structure and sound. The central aim of this book is to explain
on the basis of linguistic theorizing of how it is possible that we
understand more than we actually hear. The answer developed throughout this
book is that ellipsis is an interface phenomenon which can only be
explained on the basis of the complex interaction between syntax, semantics
and information structure. Scholars of grammar and cognitive scientists
will profit from reading this book.

Susanne Winkler is Professor of English Linguistics at Eberhard Karls
Universität Tübingen, Germany.
