In English, erroneous verbs usually do not show a match for the person or number, they contain modal verbs: can, can, should, should, will, must, should. A comprehensive treatment of the morphosyntax of Germanic inflectional systems, formulated in distributed morphology (DM; see Noyer 1997, cited as Morphologically Oriented Approaches; and Morris Halle and Alex Marantz, 1963, “Distributed Morphology and the Pieces of Inflection”, in The View from Building 20: Essays in Linguistics in Honor of Sylvain Bromberger, edited by Kenneth L. Hale, Samuel Jay Keyser and Sylvain Bromberger, Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, pp. 111-176). Although it is not exclusively a question of agreement (but rather of inflection in general), this work is very innovative in defining the division of labor between morphology and syntax when it comes to formal treatments of the chord in a minimalist/DM framework. • A question of who or what takes a singular verb. The agreement based on a grammatical person is mainly between the verb and the subject. An example of English (I am against it is) was given in the introduction of this article. “The agreement also occurs in English between the demonstratives and the names. A demonstrative must match its name in number. So with a plural noun as books, you have to use a plural this or that to give those books or books. With a singular noun, e.B book, you use a singular this or that that gives this or that book.
This book or book would not be grammatical because the demonstrative does not correspond to the name. – James R. Hurford, Grammar: A Guide for Students. Cambridge University Press, 1994 When referring to groups or general names, you should pay particular attention to the number and correspondence between the sexes. The word “agreement” when referring to a grammatical rule means that the words used by an author must match in number and gender (if any). For more details on the two main types of chords, see below: Subject-Verb Chord and Noun-Pronoun Agreement. One of the first large-scale typological investigations into the universals, trends and distinct hierarchies in the inter-language behavior of correspondences. Promotes the thesis that the processes that produce chord markers and those that produce pronouns are inherently similar (a thesis that is revived in many more recent works on clitic doubling). Wechsler, Steven and Larisa Zlatić.
2003. The many faces of the agreement. Stanford, CA: Center for the Study of Language and Information. A study on the patterns of agreement found in Arabic, particularly relevant for agreement asymmetries in SV word orders compared to VS word orders (see also Agreement resolution in coordinations). Although the name does not reveal it immediately, this article is a case study of the interaction of verbal tuning in Tagalog with the syntax of remote extraction and offers a fascinating perspective on the well-expressed intuition that certain types of correspondence are necessary precursors for certain types of syntactic movements. .
