The Syntax of Ellipsis

This chapter provides a summary of the entire book and lists its main conclusions and consequences for the syntax of ellipsis and the theory of syntax on the one hand, and for Dutch dialect syntax on the other. With respect to the first, the book has argued that both the PF-deletion and the pro-theory are needed to account for the full range of elliptical phenomena attested in natural language. This chapter briefly explores what the relation beween the two theories might be and suggests that pro is only used as Last Resort when PF-deletion is unavailable. With respect to Dutch dialect syntax, the chapter argues that all the variation attested in this book can be reduced to the lexical properties of the elements involved.

Keywords:   PF-deletion, pro, Last Resort, summary, conclusions, variation, lexical properties
