"Gapping" in DP?
Honglei Wang, David Potter, and Masaya Yoshida
268-275 (complete paper or proceedings contents)


This paper compares two gapping-like constructions: gapping in the nominal domain (NG) and gapping in the verbal domain (VG). These two superficially similar constructions show quite different properties in terms of the Coordination Constraint, embedding, scope properties and so-called cross-conjunct binding. NG does not exhibit any of those properties that motivate the Across-the-Board movement analysis of VG. We argue that NG is derived through ellipsis following the rightward movement of the remnant.
