Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews ellipsis in Hungarian, providing examples of the majority of ellipsis types that are discussed in this book. The discussion starts with nominal ellipsis and shows that, unlike ordinary noun phrases, possessed noun phrases do not show evidence for ellipsis, V-stranding ellipsis, and pseudogapping) and includes a section on preverb-stranding ellipsis and the analytical challenges it represents. Clausal ellipsis phenomena (sluicing, fragments, stripping) are treated with reference to single remnant ellipsis and multiple remnant ellipsis as well, the latter including a description of gapping. Separate sections are dedicated to right-node raising, null complement anaphora, and ellipsis in comparative clauses. Analytical and theory-specific details about the structure of Hungarian are introduced along the way.

Keywords: Hungarian, left periphery, movement, A-bar extraction, ellipsis licensing
