Agreement restrictions and agreement oddities in Romance
Roberta D'Alessandro, Diego Pescarini
July 2015
 

Romance languages mostly exhibit uniform agreement patterns: the finite verb shows full agreement with the subject; the modifiers agree with the head of a noun phrase, and past participles agree with promoted and clitic objects in those Romance languages that display participial agreement. There are however some exceptional agreement patterns, which will be examined here.This chapter is divided into three main parts. The first concerns agreement restrictions or oddities on Romance pronouns and pronominal clusters, the second looks at some agreement facts in verb/argument structures, and the third one examines agreement restrictions/oddities within the DP.
