(p.112) 9 Conclusion and Theoretical Implications
The Syntax of Ellipsis

Jeroen van Craenenbroeck

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the main findings of the first case study and lists its theoretical implications. First of all, swiping and spading provide a strong argument against the pro-theory of ellipsis. Secondly, the fact that spading derives from a cleft even though its antecedent need not contain a cleft provides an argument against syntactic isomorphism. Thirdly, the analyses provide further support for the claims that ellipsis can repair PF-illegitimate derivations or representations, and that sluicing need not always delete IP or be derived from a full wh-question. Finally, chapter four has provided evidence for a new view on the split CP-domain and its interaction with the syntax of wh-movement.

Keywords:   theoretical implications, pro-theory, syntactic isomorphosm, repair
