The papers’ contents are very abundant. There are not only macroscopic analyses on the problem of syntactic omission but also a microscopic investigation on specific syntactic omission. There is not only new thinking in theory but also new explorations in the method. At the same time, the research objects cover common Chinese language and Chinese dialects and also take different registers of language into consideration. The research perspectives involve syntax, semantics, as well as pragmatics and extend to the causes of syntactic ellipsis. In addition, it pays attention to the problems of teaching, translation, and information processing in Chinese syntactic ellipsis while attaching importance to language ontology research. Many scholars in the field of foreign languages also attended the conference. They discussed the problem of syntactic omission from the perspective of language contrast, investigated the phenomenon of omission in foreign languages, and provided enlightenment to the in-depth exploration of Chinese omission.

This conference is hosted by the Language and Language Education Research Centre of CCNU and is co-organized by the Institute of humanities and social sciences of CCNU. It is the 9th conference of Chinese Grammar Series International Academic Symposium established by the language and language education research centre, which was found in 2000.
