Head Conjuncts: Evidence from Old Swedish
Institute for Language and Folklore.
2017 (English)In: Linguistic Inquiry, ISSN 0024-3892, E-ISSN 1530-9150, Vol. 48, no 1, 129-157 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

It is sometimes taken for granted that heads as well as phrases may form coordinate conjuncts. Still, what looks like a head may be a phrase with only the head visible. This loophole is shut, however, when we turn to Old Swedish stylistic fronting. In certain contexts, only single-word expressions are fronted, which leads to the conclusion that head fronting is indeed going on. When these heads originate in a coordinate structure, they must constitute the entire first conjunct, and cannot be part of an elliptic phrasal conjunct; otherwise, the ellipsis is not properly licensed.
