When Differential Object Marking is Obligatory: Some Remarks on the Role of Case in Ellipsis and Comparatives Monica Alexandrina Irimia 1 Introduction The identity condition in ellipsis has received a great deal of attention in formal studies, one of the most prominent topics of inquiry being its precise nature. An important stream of researchAuthor: Monica Alexandrina Irimia.

    COMPARATIVES, SUPERLATIVES, AND RESOLUTION 2. PARALLELISMS BETWEEN COMPARATIVES AND SUPERLATIVES A major challenge to any proposal for a semantics of comparatives is to provide an analysis that captures the similarities between comparative ellipsis and superlatives.

Comparative subdeletion is a second type of ellipsis in comparatives that some accounts acknowledge. It occurs when the focused constituent in the than-clause is not deleted because it is distinct from its counterpart in the main clause. In other words, comparative subdeletion occurs when comparative deletion does not because the constituents.

In particular, the study discusses the implications of two central hypotheses: (i) Comparative Deletion  and Comparative Ellipsis do not represent construction specific operations, but can be subsumed under standardly sanctioned movement and deletion processes.

(ii) Phrasal comparatives are not-base-generated, but derive from a clausal by: Ellipsis in Comparatives.

In addition, the study presents arguments for an ellipsis analysis of phrasal comparatives (such as Millhouse saw more movies than Bart). ELLIPSIS is a fast paced but intricate work whose villains are shockers yet realistic.

It is essential reading for anyone interested in comparatives and ellipsis phenomena, and more generally, the syntax-semantics interface.

It has been a number of years since this book appeared. SHORT ANSWER: As F.E. comments, are right is not part of the comparative phrase, which involves the 'variable' often; so omission of are right or just right is optional. LONGER ANSWER: COMPer than, where COMPer is an adjective or adverb in the comparative degree (e.g.

older, bigger, more desirable, more often), expresses the relation between two scalar qualities in two. ‘Maximally similar’, for these purposes, means subject nominal comparatives with repeatable predicates and than-clauses with non-bare plural subjects and VP ellipsis (‘comparative illusions’) versus the same but with bare plural subjects (‘control comparatives’).

We can also contrast these patterns with what we observed for our Cited by: 8.

This chapter presents a selective overview of three classes of ellipsis phenomena that manifest themselves in the comparative construction: Comparative Deletion (CD), Comparative Ellipsis (CE), and phrasal comparatives (PCs).

A survey of some central empirical generalizations and their theoretical interpretation in the extant literature consolidates three findings.

Responses to this study noted that it only compared elided material to nothing, and that that even in grammatical comparatives, ellipsis of repeated phrases is preferred. In order to control for the awkwardness of identical predicates, Alexis Wellwood and colleagues compared comparative illusions with ellipsis to those with a different predicate.

Attributive Comparatives and Bound Ellipsis violations can. 6 This crucial distinction should be kept in mind, since it is the key to distinguishing the different effects of ellipsis on.

Both the dash and the ellipsis show that the sentences are not finished but they dont continue so I am confused if I should finish them with one of the final stop punctuation marks (when, as I read, 1- every sentence must be finished by an appropriate punctuation mark [the final stop], and 2- neither the dash nor the ellipsis are the final stop.

A verb phrase ellipsis occurs in a sentence when a verb phrase (a construction made up of a verb and a direct or indirect object, such as "buys food" or "sells cars") is omitted. Bob wants to go to the store, and Jane wants to as well.

In the second half of this sentence, the verb phrase "go to the store" is : Richard Nordquist. The syntactic licensing of VP-ellipsis: a comparative study of Spanish and English.

There are two slightly different definitions of ellipsis which are pertinent to literature. The first definition of ellipsis is the commonly used series of three dots, which can be place at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end of a.

Spacing. Whether you put spaces between the dots or not is a matter of style. The Chicago Manual of Style calls for spaces between each ellipsis AP Stylebook says to treat the ellipsis as a three-letter word, with spaces on either side of the ellipsis but no spaces between the dots.

You can use either style; just be consistent throughout your document.
