We show that the distribution of agreeing and nonagreeing pronominal forms follows from a constraint of feature uniqueness, which prevents a pronominal root from merging with more than one set of inflectional features (distinguished from lexical features, which belong to the root). The analysis is shown to extend to the agreeing third-person possessors found in most Romance and Germanic languages and to the Slavic agreeing nominal possessors.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Giurgea, Ion</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
