It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep.

This book brings together scholars who have been working on agreement

syntactic to morphological approaches, investigating different domains of

this field and gives a general overview of the different theoretical
approaches concerned with the morphological, syntactic and semantic
properties of agreement restriction phenomena.
