Title: Arguments and Agreement
Written By: Peter Ackema
Patrick Brandt
Maaike Schoorlemmer

URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199285730
Description:

This book explores the role of agreement morphology in the morphosyntactic
realization of a verb's arguments. It examines the differences and
parallels between configurational and nonconfigurational languages,
languages that allow pronoun drop only in particular constructions, and
languages which always require overt syntactic determiner phrases as
arguments. These and related issues are explored in the context of a wide
range of languages. The book will interest linguists at graduate level and
above concerned with morphosyntactic theory, typology, and the interactions
of syntax and morphology in different languages.
