Title: Aspects of the Syntax of Agreement
Written By: Cedric Boeckx
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/Aspects-of-the-Syntax-of-Agreement-isbn9780415962544
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

This volume brings together various strands of research focusing on aspects
of the syntax of agreement, and the role that agreement plays in linguistic
theory. The essays collected here show how and why agreement has emerged in
recent years as the central theoretical construct in minimalism. Although
the theoretical context of the volume is minimalist in character, Boeckx
formulates formal and substantive universals in the domain of agreement.
