We present conditions under which verb phrases are elided based on a cor- pus of positive and negative examples. Factor that affect verb phrase ellipsis in- clude: the distance between antecedent and ellipsis site, the syntactic relation between antecedent and ellipsis site, and the presence or absence of adjuncts. Building on these results, we exam- ine where in the generation architec- ture a trainable algorithm for VP ellip- sis should be located.
