Since discourse-oriented languages typologically permit more ellipsis than non-discourse-oriented languages, a non-discourse-oriented GETTING STARTED 19 language like English does not provide many of the types of data required for a cross-linguistic theory of ellipsis. 2. , new or most relevant information in the current utterance).

In discourse-oriented languages, the grammatical structure of any given sentence is significantly influenced by the surrounding discourse. 11 English is not a discourse-oriented 18 A THEORY OF ELLIPSIS language and, as expected, does not employ nearly as many forms of ellipsis as discourse-oriented languages do. Therefore, it would be impossible to create a crosslinguistically useful theory of ellipsis using English as the sole source of phenomena. For this reason, material from discourse-oriented languages is widely used in this book, with Russian and Polish figuring most prominently.

However, the and-insertion test, while a valuable heuristic, is not a litmus test for asyndetic coordination, as shown by (20): the (a) variant is a coordinate structure that blocks ellipsis, while the (b) variant, which lacks a conjunction, permits ellipsis: (20) a.
