Agreement Patterns and Coordination in Lexical Functional Grammar

Mary Dalrymple and Bozhil Hristov


Link to pdf of paper

Coordination and its interactions with agreement have been a focus of research in Lexical Functional Grammar over the past decade, though an account that captures the full range of agreement patterns in an elegant manner has proved elusive. Many previous proposals account for patterns of feature resolution but do not extend to single-conjunct agreement. Other proposals address single-conjunct agreement, but provide an account of standard resolution patterns that is less than satisfying. We provide a means of stating a typology of agreement patterns that handles resolution and single-conjunct agreement, as well as agreement requirements that apply in an across-theboard fashion to all of the conjuncts of a coordinate phrase.
