On Invisible Language in Modern English: A Corpus-based Approach to Ellipsis – eBook PDF

This ebook, On Invisible Language in Modern English: A Corpus-based Approach to Ellipsis (PDF) investigates the syntactic phenomenon of ellipsis and the linguistic forces that trigger it. It presents the results of a corpus-based study which takes into account grammatical, semantic/discursive, usage-related and processing variables.

Evelyn Gandón-Chapela builds upon the few empirical works on the ellipsis in Present-day English to offer the first comparative analysis of ellipsis and its development throughout the recent history of the English language. Moreover, the ebook also provides a complex query algorithm that automatically detects and retrieves cases of ellipsis, leading to successful recall ratios, applicable to a wide range of parsed corpora.

Review

The first sustained diachronic corpus investigation of elliptical phenomena using automatic detection techniques for modern and earlier stages of English. Gandón-Chapela has discovered and categorized an impressive range of new example types, and this book is sure to serve as the foundation for a wide range of future work.” ― Jason Merchant, Vice Provost and Lorna P. Straus Professor of Linguistics, University of Chicago, USA
