Sluicing: Cross-Linguistic Perspectives

This chapter discusses two cases of violation repair under sluicing in Serbo-Croatian (SC). One case concerns preposition stranding (P-stranding). It is shown that SC allows P-stranding under sluicing, even though it does not allow it under wh-movement without sluicing. SC initially seems to be a counterexample to Merchant’s (2001) generalization that a language which does not normally allow P-stranding should not allow it under sluicing. The chapter shows that the loss of preposition under sluicing in SC is however not conditioned by P-stranding, and so does not instantiate a counter-example to Merchant’s generalization. The chapter also examines the repair of Inverse Case Filter violations in SC, in which numeral NPs with a numeral quantifier assigning a genitive of quantification are acceptable in sluicing constructions, but not in parallel non-sluiced contexts. Such patterns are argued to lead to new conclusions concerning the morphological realization of inherent case at PF.

Keywords:   sluicing, Serbo-Croatian, genitive of quantification, inherent case, preposition stranding
