Oral Presentation for "P-stranding out of Place: The bleeding effect of ellipsis on Dutch P-stranding"

posted on 2021-05-10, 21:41 authored by James Griffiths, Güliz Güneş, Anikó Lipták, Jason Merchant
This talk was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
In Dutch, P-stranding with wh-R-pronouns is bled under sluicing, thus yielding a genuine exception to Jason Merchant's 'P-stranding Generalization'. Using results from perception and production experiments, we show that the bleeding effect cannot be phonological (prosodic) in nature. We advance a syntactic explanation, expanding and exploiting the idea that sluicing bleeds EPP-driven movement.
