July, 10-11 2003

The status of agreement is a core issue in morphological and syntactic
theory. Universidade Nova de Lisboa hosts the Lisbon Workshop on
Agreement aiming at discussing the following issues:

i) What is the relation between syntax and morphology in determining
agreement relations?

ii) Which (if any) syntactic configurations are relevant for
determining agreement?

iii) How relevant is verbal agreement for the purposes of EPP?

iv) Are there connections between verbal and DP-internal agreement?

v) How are person, number and gender agreement to be distinguished
both morphologically and syntactically?

vi) Do AGREE and Spec,head relations trigger different agreement
effects? If so, why?

vii) What type of relation is there between head-movement and
morphological agreement?

discussion.  Abstracts must meet be sent anonymously as an RTF
