A Theory of Agreement and Its Application to Serbo-Croatian.
Wechsler, Stephen; Zlatic, Larisa
Language, v76 n4 p799-832 Dec 2000
Four lexical features of a noun are relevant to agreement: semantic conditions on reference; person, number, and gender features of the referential index; concord features; and declension class. These features are correlated by a chain of binary constraints. Patterns of mixed agreement result from individual violations to the constraints. Three main types of agreement are predicted, all of them attested to Serbocroatian. (Author/VWL)
