A typological database of agreement
Brown, DP, Tiberius, C and Corbett, GG (2002) A typological database of agreement In: UNSPECIFIED UNSPECIFIED, pp1843 - pp1846.
This paper discusses the construction of a typological database of agreement on the basis of fifteen languages taken from different language families so as tomaximise diversity. For each of these languages, the database will contain detailed information about agreement controllers, targets, domains, categories, and conditions. Thus the database is designed to help us to develop a general typology of agreement systems which predicts what is, and what is not a possible agreement system in natural language. This is primarily a theoretical aim, but the database may also have practical applications in that agreement has implications for the design of parsers in natural language systems.
