Chapter 10. Lack of morphological identity and ellipsis resolution in Brazilian Portuguese
In this paper we investigate grammatical cases of verbal and nominal ellipsis in which there is no full morphological identity between the antecedent and the elided constituent. We argue that lack of identity in these cases can be captured if inflectional material is hosted by functional categories and valued in the course of the derivation, as in Chomsky’s (2001) Agree-based system.
