The paper describes a substitutional ap- proach to ellipsis resolution giving compa- rable results to (Dalrymple et al. , 1991), but without the need for order-sensitive in- terleaving of quantifier scoping and ellip- sis resolution. It is argued that the order- independence results from viewing seman- tic interpretation as building a description of a semantic composition, instead of the more common view of interpretation as ac- tually performing the composition.
