Abstract and Keywords

This chapter walks the reader through a range of elliptical constructions available in Polish. The choice of constructions is determined by the degree of attention they have received in the ellipsis literature. I focus on those features of these constructions that warrant an ellipsis-based approach and address, as appropriate, the extent to which they fit in with the existing theoretical approaches to ellipsis. The task of explaining the behavior of elliptical constructions, both intralinguistically and cross-linguistically, has been successfully undertaken by proponents of the PF-deletion approach to ellipsis, but Polish continues to pose a challenge for this approach in some respects.

Keywords: sluicing, fragment answers, stripping, prepositions, right-node raising, predicate ellipsis, gapping, non-constituent coordination, comparative deletion, antecedent-contained deletion
