Abstract:

Agreement features correlate closely with semantics as well as noun
morphology. This book presents a precise formal theory of those
correlations, illustrated with Serbo-Croatian and other languages. In
explaining regular agreement as a network of constraints, the theory
also predicts a restricted set of exceptional situations where normal
agreement can give way to agreement mismatches.

With this framework in place, the authors explore a number of factors
that affect agreement processes. The theory even explains the striking
cross-linguistic generalizations expressed in Corbett's Agreement
Hierarchy. Agreement is shown to be a distributed phenomenon,
manifesting its many faces among the various components of grammar.
