Agreement Marking

The agreement generally includes the matching of the value of a grammatical category between different elements of a sentence (or sometimes between sentences, as in some cases where a pronoun agrees with its predecessor or its reference opinion). Some categories that often trigger grammatical chords are listed below. In Hungarian, verbs have a polypersonal concordance, which means that they correspond to more than one of the arguments of the verb: not only its subject, but also its object (accusative). There is a difference between the case where a particular object is present and the case where the object is indeterminate or if there is no object at all. (Adverbs have no influence on the form of the verb.) Examples: Szeretek (I love someone or something indeterminate), szeretem (I love him, she, or her, or her, specifically), szeretlek (I love you); szeret (he loves me, me, you, someone or something indeterminate), szereti (he loves him, her or her especially). Of course, names or pronouns can specify the exact object. In short, there is agreement between a verb and the person and the number of its subject and the specificity of its object (which often refers more or less precisely to the person). In most languages that have verbal markings, people markings are apprehisations attached to the lexical or auxiliary adverb, as in the examples above. However, there are also languages in which the markers are not appositions, but air conditioners. Clitics resemble carriers in the formation of a phonological unit with a word (its host) that precedes the host (proklitik) or follows it (trigger).

However, while Affixes adheres only to certain types of words (or rods), clitics are attached to specialized phrases and/or syntactic positions. A common position for climate scientists is the beginning of the verb or verb complex. In Tinrine (oceanic; In New Caledonia, for example, subject markers are proclimatic for the first element of VP, which can be the verb (6a), a voltage/aspect particle (6b) or a verbal modifier (6c). Polysynthesis often encompasses polypersonalization, which in turn is a form of head marking. Poly personalization has also been correlated with obesity. Apart from affix or climate marking, we occasionally find people marks on phonological changes in the strain. For example, in Misantla Totonac (totonacan; Veracruz, Mexico), the second person is Singular A (and also S) marker (with some verbs) characterized by the gentleness of the tribe. This is the case for all verbs containing roots /min/ `come` and /an/ `go`. An example of the latter is given in (10).

Note that the person marked on the verb in (4a) is from A while he is in (4b) of the P. Whether the A or the P that is marked on the verb depends on the highest in the hierarchy of people 1 > 2 > 3. If the top argument is a P and not an A, the verb occurs with a special marker, h, in (4b), the reverse marker. Previous studies have shown that distinctive case marking reduces the attraction effects in production, i.e. the tendency to produce a verb that corresponds to a non-subject noun. An important outstanding question is whether the attraction effects are modulated by case information in the understanding of sentences. To answer this question, we did three attraction experiments in Armenian, a language with a rich and productive fall system.
