What has remained under-investigated is the fact that modals tend to make excellent ellipsis licensers and, conversely, that many of the naturally occurring cases of ellipsis are licensed by modals.

The book concentrates on the syntax of the modal auxiliaries with special focus on English and investigates the grammatical relationship with the process of ellipsis that interacts most relevantly with the modals in grammaticalized fashion by including a special emphasis on verb-phrase ellipsis.

The papers are divided into three main groups: the papers in the first group deal with particular questions Modality and ellipsis book the text-constituting role of anaphora, deixis, coreference, modality, conjunctions and particles, theme, topic, ellipsis, etc., the second group of papers discusses the connectedness in.

Aspects of modality and ellipsis have become prominent in theoretical linguistics over the last years. What has remained under-investigated is the fact that modals tend to make excellent ellipsis licensers and, conversely, that many of the naturally occurring cases of ellipsis are licensed by modals.

The chapter discusses a selection of major approaches to modality and mood in generative syntax. The primary focus lies on the representation of modal auxiliaries and verbs. Key issues relating to modal adverbs and a selection of aspects pertaining to mood are reviewed.

The book thoroughly and critically evaluates proposals from the modality literature, focusing on argument structure, scopal properties and the interplay of modals with tense and aspect.

The present volume is a collection of studies devoted to major issues in contemporary syntax and semantics: in particular, argument structure, ellipsis, negation and scope.

The papers included, which represent a number of formally rigorous contemporary frameworks, bring out new facts from a large variety of languages as well as novel solutions to a broad range of analytic puzzles.

A reference book on Modern Hebrew morphology and syntax, this describes the language as it is really spoken and written in Israel today. The author pays particular attention to functional distinctions, giving equal weight to colloquial and formal usage.5/5(1). A primary goal of contemporary theoretical linguistics is to develop a theory of the correspondence between sound (or gesture) and meaning.

This sound-meaning correspondence breaks down completely in the case of ellipsis, and yet various forms of ellipsis are pervasive in natural language: words and phrases which should be in the linguistic signal go missing.

The ellipsis is also called a suspension point, points of ellipsis, periods of ellipsis, or (colloquially) "dot-dot-dot". Depending on their context and placement in a sentence, ellipses can indicate an unfinished thought, a leading statement, a slight pause, an echoing voice, or a nervous or awkward silence.

Aposiopesis is the use of an ellipsis to trail off into silence—for example: "But.This book covers the essentials of modality and offers both foundational ideas and cutting edge advances. The book consists of what are essentially tutorials on modality and modal notions, covering definitions of modality, morphosyntactic form, conceptual .‘If the modality concerns a past-time situation, the modal as such does not appear in a past-tense form.’ ‘Now start adding in the number of modalities which exist, in addition to so-called major and minor keys.’ ‘And the idea of the other modalities being introduced as complements to the Lydian mode, was added.’.
