The Types of Ellipsis, Especially Specific Types in Constructions with The Meaning of A Comparison And Restriction

Speaker:
Marie Mikulová
Abstract:
In the talk, we attempt to answer the question what is and what is not ellipsis and specify criteria for identification of elliptical sentences. We will report on an analysis of types of ellipsis from the point of view of semantic (semantico-syntactic) representation of sentences. We do not deal with conditions and causes of constitution of elliptical positions in sentences (when and why it is possible to omit something in a sentence) but we focus exclusively on identification of elliptical positions (if there is something omitted and what) and on their semantic representation, specifically on their representation on the tectogrammatical level of the Prague Dependency Treebanks. Special attention is paid to specific types of ellipsis in constructions with the meaning of a comparison and restriction. The talk is aimed at linguists and it will be presented in Czech.
