Agreement morpheme order: window on the syntax of LF

Mark Campana

Abstract


In this paper I investigate the relationship between agreement morpheme order and syntactic processes that take place at LF. That a relationship should exist at all follows from the premise that the function of agreement is to license NPs marked for abstract Case. The execution of this function ultimately requires movement, i.e. of Case-marked NPs to the agreement morphemes responsible for licensing them; this in turn potentially interacts with other instances of movement and the representations they derive.
