Sluicing and Left-Branch Extraction out of Islands
Lydia Grebenyova
164-172 (complete paper or proceedings contents)

Abstract

This paper explores the contrast in behavior of island violations and left-branch extraction violations under Sluicing, and suggests that different processes underly these phenomena. The account is based on examining the nature of encoding grammatical violations. It includes the proposal that the lower copy is the default element for violation encoding, and that the encoding is sensitive to violation uniformity (i.e., violations of different kinds cannot be marked on the same element.)
