A corpus study of pseudogapping and its theoretical consequences

Abstract : This paper presents the results of a large-scale investigation of the use of NP-remnant pseudogapping (PG) in the COCA corpus. Discourse conditions on the use of noncomparative and comparative PG are discussed. It is shown that the data raise problems for mainstream gener ative analyses involving remnant-raising and an alternative interpretive analysis is suggested. The question of whether PG is a subcase of VPE is discussed.
