If, for example, a non-native speaker of English were to utter (27a), it would be understood, even though (27b) is the grammatical way of saying it: (27) a. *Mom accidentally let out the bird, but Dima caught. b. Mom accidentally let out the bird, but Dima caught it. ). In languages that permit object ellipsis, however, understandability is still not sufficient to make ellipsis grammatical, as is shown by the contrast between (28a) and (28b), which derives from the different function and case marking of the antecedent in each instance: (28) a.

As for elliptical phenomena, the more completely they are determined by syntax, the easier it is to formulate rules to account for them, whereas the more they rely on factors from mixed domains or on intangible aspects of human knowledge, the harder they are to capture by rules.
