Agreement plays a central role in modern generative grammar. The present
collection brings together contributions from experts on various aspects of
agreement systems in the world's languages in an attempt to formulate
formal and substantive universals in this domain. All the papers contained
here focus on the formalization of the mechanisms of agreement and on the
relationship between case and agreement. All the papers propose solutions
by seriously examining cross-linguistic data from the usual Germanic and
Romance languages to Lummi, Greek, Hindi, Turkish and other Turkic
languages, Japanese, Tsez, Masaai, Russian, Arabic, Basque, Warlpiri,
Kaltakungu, and Bantu.
