Rezumat:Gapping constructions typically involve two conjoined clauses where the second clause lacks the verb (John likes grapes and Jane, oranges). There have been two competing analyses in the literature on gapping, which has been viewed either as a type of VP-ellipsis (Wilder 1994, Lin 2002, Coppock 2001) or as an instance of across-the-board movement (Johnson 1996, 2004). Starting from the literature on gapping in English, we bring to attention gapping constructions in Romanian and focus on the licensing environments and on the categories and the strings affected by gapping. The paper is structured in two sections. First we briefly overview the previous research on gapping in English, then we examine the structure of the gapped conjunct and the status of the remnants in Romanian and we look at the types of conjuncts that allow gapping.
