The papers in this volume address two main topics: Q1: What is the nature, and especially the scope, of ellipsis in natural language? Q2: What are the linguistic/philosophical implications of what one takes the nature/scope of ellipsis to be? Each of these main topics includes a large sub-part that deals specifically with nonsentential speech. Within the first main topic, Q1, there arises the sub-issue of whether nonsentential speech falls within the scope of ellipsis or not; within the second main topic, Q2, there arises the sub-issue of what linguistic/philosophical implications follow, if…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
The papers in this volume address two main topics: Q1: What is the nature, and especially the scope, of ellipsis in natural language? Q2: What are the linguistic/philosophical implications of what one takes the nature/scope of ellipsis to be? Each of these main topics includes a large sub-part that deals specifically with nonsentential speech. Within the first main topic, Q1, there arises the sub-issue of whether nonsentential speech falls within the scope of ellipsis or not; within the second main topic, Q2, there arises the sub-issue of what linguistic/philosophical implications follow, if nonsentential speech does/does not count as ellipsis. This book is unique in that it offers the reader: - Papers on the boundary between philosophy and linguistics, - Applications of advanced work in theoretical linguistics to traditional philosophical questions, - It is the only volume of papers ever published on sub-sentential speech, - Major contribution to our understanding of ellipsis in natural language, presently a central topic in syntactic theory. This book is of interest to professionals and advanced graduate students in the fields of philosophy of language, semantics, and syntax. TOC:I. The Nature and Scope of Ellipsis: A. How Many Varieties? Against Reconstruction in Ellipsis (M. Dalrymple); The Semantics of Nominal Exclamatives (P. Portner, R. Zanuttini). B. Ellipsis and Nonsentential Speech: The Genuineness Issue. Nonsententials in Minimalism (E. Barton, L. Progovac); A Note on Alleged Cases of Nonsentential Assertion (P. Ludlow); On the Interpretation and Performance of Nonsentential Assertions (L. Clapp); Nonsentences, Implicature, and Success in Communication (T. Kenyon); The link between sentences and 'assertion': An Evolutionary Accident? (A. Carstairs-McCarthy).- II. Implications: Knowledge by Acquaintance and Meaning in Isolation (A. Botterell); Co-extensive Theories and Unembedded Definite Descriptions (A. Barber); The Ellipsis Account of Fiction-Talk (M. Reimer); Quinean Interpretation and Anti-Vernacularism (S. Davis;) Saying What You Mean: Unarticulated Constituents and Communications (E. Borg).
