<rdf:RDF xmlns:dcterms="" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:rdf="" xmlns:bibo="" xmlns:dspace="" xmlns:foaf="" xmlns:void="" xmlns:xsd="" > <rdf:Description rdf:about=""> <dcterms:abstract xml:lang="eng">This paper is concerned with two characteristics of certain elliptical constructions: a restriction on possible correlates (or antecedent phrases) for the remnants of ellipsis, and a definiteness effect that makes non-definite phrases behave semantically as definites in ellipsis sites. Interestingly, these two properties are found only in some ellipsis construals, namely in German Reduced Conditionals and in Sluicing, and they do not apply to the majority of known ellipsis types, e.g., VP-Ellipsis and Gapping. The paper presents a unified account of the presence or absence of such characteristics across ellipsis types, taking as the key ingredient the effects of focus in ellipsis and its interaction with the general semantics of each construal (i.e., conditionals, interrogative clauses and declaratives clauses).</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Romero, Maribel</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Romero, Maribel</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Correlate Restriction and Definiteness Effect in Ellipsis</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-07-20T06:10:48Z</dc:date> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Ersch. in: The Interfaces : Deriving and Interpreting Omitted Structures / ed. by Kerstin Schwabe und Susanne Winkler (Eds.)
