Ellipsis poses interesting challenges for linguists because speakers are expressing something that is not present in their words. This volume not only addresses the three perspectives resulting from recent research: Chomskys syntactic Government and Binding approach, the semantic theories, and the processing accounts, but it also examines the cross-linguistic aspects of ellipsis by comparing the possibilities for a given type of elided structure in Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, and in English.

This volume will be of interest to both semanticists and syntacticians.
