Summary:   FOR QUERY: 12.561

I WISH TO THANK THOSE WHO RESPONDED TO MY QUERY INTO DOCUMENTATION OF ELLIPSIS IN LANGUAGE. I WISH TO THANK TIL TURNER WHO SUGGESTED ENGLISH GRAMMAR BY RODNEY HUEELESON. ON PAGES 204-5 HE DEFINES TWO TYPES OF ELLIPSIS: *BOUND* AND *FREE* WITH EXAMPLES OF BOTH.

MY GRATITUDE TO PETER MENZEL WHO MADE SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS ON CLARIFYING THE ISSUE./LL/
THANKS ALSO TO KEVIN JOHNSON WHO OFFERED SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BETTER DEFINE THE TOPIC SINCE IT MAY BE THOUGHT TO BE WIDER THAN I THOUGHT IT MAY BE.

I LOCATED A DISSERTATION BY BERNHARD SCHWARZ TITLED TOPICS IN ELLIPSIS. HE DISCUSSES THE SUBJECT FOR BOTH ENGLISH AND GERMAN.

FINALLY, I NOTICED A JOB POSTING BY MICROSOFT FOR SUMMER INTERN ON THE SAME SUBJECT.
