In the spring of 1969, Haj Ross presented ''Guess who?'' at the fifth annual meeting of the Chicago Linguistics Society and published it in the resulting proceedings. The spring of 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the presentation and publication of this landmark paper, which opened the door to a wide range of important discoveries on the interface between phonological, syntactic, and semantic systems of grammar. The construction that Ross named, sluicing, sits at the intersection of two of the most important areas of grammatical theory in the past half-century: the theory of movement, in particular the locality of unbounded dependencies and islands to movement, and the theory of ellipsis, where there is linguistic meaning without the expected form.
''Sluicing and ellipsis at 50'' is a conference in celebration of this landmark work in linguistic theory, to be held at the University of Chicago on Friday and Saturday, April 12-13, 2019. The conference is dedicated to an exploration of the wide range of phenomena that have been investigated under the rubric of sluicing, but also more generally formal approaches to ellipsis, including questions of the potential mechanisms of ellipsis (deletion, copying, proforms or other anaphoric devices). The conference will feature two plenary lectures, one each by Haj Ross and Howard Lasnik, as well as a range of additional invited talks by a range of prominent scholars who have worked on ellipsis and sluicing in the intervening decades, in addition to a number of papers selected by abstract submission.
