    This second edition of James D. McCawley's classic textbook offers in one volume a complete course in the syntactic structure of English. New to this edition are sections on appositive constructions, parasitic gaps, contrastive negation, and comparative conditional sentences, as well as expanded coverage of cleft sentences and free relatives.5/5(1). In linguistics, coordination is a complex syntactic structure that links together two or more elements; these elements are called conjuncts or presence of coordination is often signaled by the appearance of a coordinator (coordinating conjunction), e.g. and, or, but (in English).The totality of coordinator(s) and conjuncts forming an instance of coordination is .

      Right Node Raising and Gapping consist of parallel sentential conjuncts, one of them being elliptical. The ellipsis is in the first conjunct in Right Node Raising and in the last conjunct in Gapping. We analyze ellipsis as the result of radical deaccentuation, to avoid superfluous repetition of phonetic material. In order to be well-formed, these constructions rely . Right node raising (RNR) Right node raising, abbreviated as RNR, is a test that isolates the test string on the right side of a coordinate structure. The assumption is that only constituents can be shared by the conjuncts of a coordinate structure, e.g. Drunks could put off the customers. (a) [Drunks] and [beggars] could put off the customers.

    Right node raising. Right node raising (RNR) is usually associated with coordination, and descriptively involves ellipsis of righthand material in non-final conjuncts. The Dutch example below shows double RNR of a noun phrase. In what follows I will capitalize relevant pitch accents, and italicize the shared part of the by: 8. All the chapters in this book aim at providing new answers to these questions on the basis of a detailed discussion of a wide range of phenomena (gapping, Right-Node-Raising, Comparative Deletion, Across-the-Board (ATB) movement, tough-constructions, nominalizations, scope interactions, wh-movement, A-movement, Case and Agreement relations.

This book investigates two elliptical coordinations in German, Right Node Raising and Gapping. Ellipsis in both constructions is claimed to be the result of a phonological process which is conditioned by prosodic and focus semantic constraints.

It is convincingly argued that Right Node Raising cannot involve raising to the right periphery: The alleged movement freely Cited by: This book investigates two elliptical coordinations in German, Right Node Raising and Gapping.

Right Node Raising is the term used by linguists to refer to a construction in which a shared argument surfaces at the right periphery of a coordinate structure.

The rules for phrase structure that we've now settled on involve constructing trees via the following algorithm: John bought a record, and Mary a book. Examples like (14) are referred to as Gapping (that is, as long as we're careful to avoid Right Node Raising and Gapping), we should be able to (cautiously) use coordination as a.

This chapter reviews Conjunction Reduction (CR) phenomena—forward CR (stripping, Phrase Cluster Coordination), and backward CR (Right-Node Raising), and discusses theoretical concerns they raise and approaches to explaining them (ellipsis, across-the-board movement, flexible constituency, multiple dominance/MD).

It covers the main empirical generalizations, Author: Christopher Wilder. I will first introduce right node raising and then go on to demonstrate the many properties that self-repairs share with right node raising.

Right node raising and self-repairs. Right node raising constructions are a type of coordinate construction in which a part of the first conjunct is : E. Matthew Husband. Johannessen focuses on coordination, i.e.

structures with conjunctions such as and, but, and or. These are important words in their constructions because they have many properties in common with categories like verbs and prepositions.

She has analyzed thirty-three languages and has found many striking similarities, presenting the first study of coordination from a cross-linguistic. right-node raising, whereas forward gapping is true gapping. But in a theory without movement, accounts of node-raising also appeal to surface constituency (cf.

Abbott’s () warning that constituents can be right-node-raised, but right-node raising does not entail constituency). Email your librarian or administrator to recommend adding this book to your organisation's collection.
