The essays in this collection comprehensively examine this little known phenomenon in all areas where it is (or was) attested--most... more...

  • Ellipsisby Anne Lobeck

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 164.99

    This book elaborates a theory of ellipsis that sheds new light on a well-known phenomenon, bringing it under the aegis of general and universal principles.
