Abstract A computational account of ellipsis should specify not only how the meaning of an elliptical sentence is computed in context but also a description of what is being computed. Many proposals can be divided into two groups, as per whether they compute the meaning of an elliptical sentence based on the semantic or the syntactic parts of its context. A unifying theme of these proposals is that they are all based on the idea that the meaning of an elliptical sentence is determinable based on a structured representation which is transformationally related to its surface syntactic structure.
