Abstract:

The status of agreement is a core issue in current morphological and
syntactic theory. The collection of papers in this volume focuses on
important issues, such as the nature of the relation between syntax and
morphology in determining agreement relations; whether and which syntactic
configurations are relevant for determining agreement; the relevance of
verbal agreement for the purposes of EPP; the inquiry into the existence of
connections between verbal and DP-internal agreement; on the morphological
and syntactic distinction of person, number and gender agreement; how and
why AGREE and Spec,head relations trigger different agreement effects; and
the type of relation that exists between head-movement and morphological
agreement. The data collected come from a wide variety of languages and the
studies presented discuss innovative and thought-provoking ideas for
dealing with agreement phenomena.
