Negation in Gapping

Chapter 3 investigates the narrow‐scope readings and the various environments they occur in (coordinations with contrastive but auxiliary gapping, gapping with a focus particle in the second conjunct). It proposes that gapping is subject to the principle of balanced contrast, which is why narrow‐scope readings arise.

Keywords:   but, auxiliary gapping, second conjunct, balanced contrast
