The Syntax of Sluicing in Omani Arabic
International Journal of English Linguistics
This study examines the syntax of sluicing in Omani Arabic to uncover its morpho-syntactic properties and underlying source. It also attempts to account for the apparent preposition stranding (p-stranding) effects displayed by Omani Arabic sluicing, which indicates that the language is a counterexample to the p-stranding generalisation (Merchant, 2001). The paper concludes that sluicing exists in the language and it is derived from regular wh-questions by wh-movement and TP ellipsis at PF.doi:10.5539/ijel.v9n6p337 fatcat:imab2v4b4vhj7juegvkaiag7uu
