Title: Subject omission in present-day written English
Authors: Haegeman, Liliane
Issue Date: 2007
Publisher: Padova, Unipress
Abstract: This paper concentrates on certain registers in English in which the obligation for there to be a subject associated with a finite clause seems to be relaxed. This is notably the case in some variants of spoken English, here illustrated through dialogues taken from novels in (5)2, and in some written registers which tend to use abbreviated writing such as diary writing or note taking, which are illustrated in (6).
