Phrase-Level Parallelism Effect on Noun Phrase Number Agreement.
Scherre, Maria Mata Pereira
Language Variation and Change, v13 n1 p91-107 2001
Examines the role of phrase-level parallelism on noun phrase number agreement and demonstrates Puerto Rican Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese exhibit more similarities than differences with regard to this constraint. Claims the phrase-level parallelism effect on noun phrase number agreement is embedded in a universal principle of linguistic use: parallel processing. (Author/VWL)
