Abstract
This study attemts to explore the syntactic and semantic properties of the English Right Node Raising Construction(RNRC). While previous approaches have problems in capturing these properties, the domain ellipsis analysis of Beavers and Sag(2004) based on Reape's(1994) word order domain theory has proven to provide more precoes explanations for both the problems of other approaches and the right-peripherality of the right-node raised element. This study extends Beavers and Sag's(2004) investigation by providing explanations for yet problematic cases of RNRC, involving prosodic ellipsis and wide scope reading of the rightmost quantifier.
