perspectives: the symmetrical properties the construction imposes on
its conjuncts, and how conjuncts interact with other categories
outside coordination with respect to agreement and other grammatical
phenomena. It focuses on data from Spanish as this language is
characterized by its rich pattern of overt agreement between the
subject and the verb, between nouns and adjectives, and also between
clitics and lexical DP objects and indirect objects. 
 + It offers a simple, unified theory of coordination within current
 syntactic frameworks
 + It provides a succinct summary of the main analysis of
