Abstract

This article analyzes multiple subject verb agreement in complex tense clauses in light of the Feature Inheritance (FI) approach (Chomsky 2008, 2013). After establishing that these complex tense clauses are bi-clausal with two TP projections and one CP, I argue that they present a challenge to FI according to which C is the locus of φ-features. I propose an analysis where I maintain that T is lexically specified for φ-features and show how this view can account for all the multiple agreement facts.
