Agreement, in its simplest form, can be described as a situation where information associated with a 'controller' element also appears on another 'target' element. In many languages, agreement is pervasive, so much so that each of the major syntactic frameworks requires a way of dealing with it, either as a primitive operation such as Agree (as in Minimalism), or in terms of agreement, concord or index features (as in LFG and HPSG). However, despite extensive research, many aspects of agreement still remain deeply puzzling.
