This study investigates the non-adjacent co-occurrence of a nominal (N) and a combination of a numeral and a classifier (Nume-Cl) associated with N in Thai. Having established that Nume-Cl does not occupy an argument or adjunct position, the study proposes an ellipsis analysis, where the Nume-Cl is base-generated in a separate clause and moves to a focus position, after which the rest of the clause is elided. This analysis accounts for most properties associated with this sentence-type, especially the island facts, an important reason for earlier work to analyze the relation between N and Nume-Cl as one of movement.
