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. Case agreement is not an essential feature of English (only personal pronouns and pronouns that have a case mark). . . .
