This chapter on resumption argues for an account for reconstruction based syntactically on the presence of copies resulting from movement or ellipsis, and semantically on copy interpretation as indefinite or definite. Such analysis provides a straightforward explanation to major syntactic and semantic properties of resumption: availability of reconstruction within islands, lack of pair-list readings.

Keywords:   reconstruction, resumption, ellipsis, islandhood, pair-list, functional
