Closest Conjunct Agreement
Andrew Ira Nevins, Philipp Weisser
June 2018

Closest conjunct agreement is of great theoretical interest in terms of what it reveals about the structure of coordination, the locality of agreement relations, and the interaction between syntax, semantics, and morphology in the expression of agreement. We highlight recent approaches to the phenomenon, including typologically diverse case studies and experimentally-elicited results, and point out crystallized generalizations as well as directions for future research, including the absence of last conjunct agreement, the absence of closest conjunct case, differences between conjunction and disjunction, and the role of linear adjacency in morphological realization.
