CitationSzczegielniak, Adam. 2008. "Islands in Sluicing in Polish." In Proceedings of the 27th West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL 27), ed. Natasha Abner and Jason Bishop, 16-18 May, 2008, Los Angeles, CA, 404-412. Somerville, MA: Cascadilla Proceedings Project.
AbstractIn this paper the author claims on the basis of Polish data that: (1) Sluicing does not alleviate islands, just like VP ellipsis; (2) Ellipsis is not licensed by syntactic identity (no PF, LF Islands, or trace deletion); (3) There is syntactic structure in the ellipsis site; (4) ellipsis is licensed by a recoverability condition--if there is enough information in the non-elided signal, ellipsis is acceptable, including case-mismatches, PP stranding violations, adjunct islands, etc.
