On Agree and feature valuation/interpretability


2009. szept. 22, 14h, MTA NyTI földszinti előadó:

The talk develops a valuation-driven system which does not require all unintepretable features to undergo feature checking. The system will be shown to have important consequences for the general question of what drives Agree and Move. Evidence for the system argued for in the talk will come from gender and case licensing. One of the phenomena we will be looking at is first and last conjunct agreement.
