Abstract:Romanian poses an important empirical problem to a widely spread claim found in the literature on nominal ellipsis, namely the existence of argumental remnants. A classical claim in the literature is that ellipsis affects the entire lexical projection of the DP (i.e. the whole NP constituent) so that adjuncts (and specifiers) but not arguments can surface as remnants. In this squib, contrary to this widely spread belief, we discuss a series of instances of nominal ellipsis with argumental remnants, empirically proving that arguments can be remnants in nominal ellipsis. We then discuss the implications of this phenomenon for the theory of nominal ellipsis, arguing that argumental remnants provide good evidence for Focus Fronting in nominal ellipsis.
