Null Objects in English Recipes.
Culy, Christopher
Language Variation and Change, v8 n1 p91-124 1996
Recipes exhibit a phenomenon nonexistent in other commonly studied varieties, (for example, conversational discourse), namely, zero anaphors as direct objects. This article examines this phenomenon and explores its consequences for linguistic theory. Results reveal that stylistic, semantic, and discourse factors are the most important in the phenomenon.
