The present monograph represents a theoretical exploration in the domains of ellipsis, coordination and the syntax and semantics of comparison, which at the same time offers a detailed empirical study forcussing on various aspects of the comparative construction. It is argued that two construction specific ellipsis processes generally assumed to be active in comparatives (Comparative Deletion and Comparative Ellipsis) can be subsumed under two groups of operations that are independently required in the grammar: movement and the ellipsis processes of Conjunction Reduction (including Gapping, Right Node Raising and Across-the-Board Extraction). The resulting account also makes it possible to envision an empirically adequate ellipsis analysis of so-called Phrasal Comparatives.
