VP Ellipsis by Tree Surgery

Katrin Erk and Alexander Koller

In Proceedings of the 13th Amsterdam Colloquium, Amsterdam, 2001.

We present jigsaw parallelism constraints, a flexible formal tool for replacing parts of trees with other trees. Jigsaw constraints extend the Constraint Language for Lambda Structures, a language used in underspecified semantics to declaratively describe scope, ellipsis, and their interaction, and can be used to improve the coverage of ellipsese represented by CLLS.
