AG 12 Relating elliptical utterances to information in context

Building K2, room 17.81

Kurzbeschreibung // short description

In this workshop, we would like to explicitly reconsider the way elliptical utterances of very different sorts relate to the information provided by the context of utterance (including visual and prosodic information, script knowledge etc.). In particular, we would like to ask the following two questions: Is it possible that there is one overarching principle or mechanism that relates the relevant information to the ellipsis site? And what are the core factors that are necessary to identify / predict the relevant information? (And the reverse question: what happens if redundancy formation fails and reduction still takes place?)
