I have some question about continuation fragments, or ellipsis fragments:
In the end the referendum will turn not on calculations of taxes and oil revenue, but on identity and power.
Because "turn on" is a single unbreakable verb phrase, the example appears to break it up by using "turn not on X, but on Y" pattern. Would my following rewrite be better?
In the end the referendum will turn on not calculations of taxes and oil revenue, but identity and power.
,where I used the "turn on NOT X, but Y" (different from "turn NOT on X, but ON Y") pattern.
