The Syntax of Ellipsis

This chapter focuses on the fact that in certain dialects of Dutch the polarity markers yes and no can be accompanied by subject clitics and/or agreement suffixes. Just as in the previous chapter, there are many empirical similarities between this construction and Short Do Replies. This chapter argues that the structure underlying conjugated instances of yes and no is in fact a Short Do Reply that has been PF-deleted. As such, this construction combines PF-deletion and pro. The chapter also provides an account for the absence of clitics and (complementizer) agreement endings under sluicing.

Keywords:   polarity markers, conjugated yes and no, subject clitics, agreement suffixes, complementizer agreement, sluicing
