Can you recommend literature on ellipsis, reference and conjunctions?
Hi everyone,
I am doing DELTA module 2 and I am writing a background essay on discourse markers. What I am focusing on is ellipsis, conjunctions and reference.
The books I already have Cook �s Discourse, MacCarthy �s Discourse for Language Teachers.. But I am looking for more books � literature (no articles though) to support my essay...
Can you recommend any that extensively cover ellipsis, conjunctions and reference?
 Thank you in advance,

I find that this text is comprehensive in terms of ellipsis.

This also has an extensive section on ellipsis. 

I�ll be interested to know what you find on reference and referential devices.

Thank you. I ll look for a soft copy of them...
I am now focusing on reference expressions and I found that Cook, Halliday and Hassan, McCarthy talk about it... I still havent pondered on ellipsis or conjunctions yet...
