Right Node Raising: Evidence from 'Rule Interaction'
Jessica M. Clapp
129-137 (complete paper or proceedings contents)


This paper explores how right node raising (RNR) interacts with other syntactic operations such as VP ellipsis, pseudogapping, gapping, and VP topicalization. It updates and reevaluates data from Abels (2004) which claims that such paradigms are evidence for an ellipsis account of RNR, concluding instead that a rightward across-the board (ATB) movement account of RNR makes better predictions about grammaticality.
