Abstract

Various grammatical phenomena have been analyzed so far as essentially <i>formal</i>, or interfacing with PF syntax. Verb subject agreement asymmetries, subject pronoun deficiency (or &#8216;Pro drop&#8216;), and morpho-syntactic variation in reciprocal expressions in Arabic have been treated as such. The article investigates how important properties of these phenomena can be more successfully treated in a fine-grained semantic syntax. The analysis is based on the semantic interpretability of features (typically Number), found in Agree configurations, in line with Minimalist approaches.
