In the previous chapter, I have given a detailed account of the syntax of coordinate deletion, and I have demonstrated how the linear approach to deletion under identity in coordination provides us with an account which is considerably simpler than previous accounts, covers the same range of empirical data and more, and brings interesting new facts to the discussion of coordinate deletions. The very statement of the coordinate deletion rule, Delete under identity in coordinated structures, also raises a number of questions of considerable interest, which I have not discussed in the previous chapter, and which now need to be answered.
