Abstract: The present study is an attempt to account for non-sentential utterance (NSU) production without assuming the existence of a 'syntactically full sentence' for every NSU. The model for NSU production that derives from this study has the following four advantages over the popular 'constituent-omission' model: It 1) accounts for the production of NSUs that native speakers variably 'reconstruct', 2) explains why in certain contexts pro-drop cannot occur in languages that have morphologically marked subject-verb agreement, 3) models the production of NSUs without devising separate production processes for 'ellipses' and 'fragments', and 4) predicts what constituents have to be present in a given NSU. It also keeps the involvement of syntax in NSU production to a minimum.
