(p.1) Chapter 1 Introduction
Argument Licensing and Agreement

Claire Halpert

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces some novel properties of Zulu agreement and movement and asks what makes it and other Bantu languages look so different from other languages in these respects, laying out the theoretical and typological issues that arise in the comparative approach to case and agreement proposed in the rest of the book. It summarizes the proposal that Zulu has an active system of case-licensing that functions separately from agreement and discusses the implications that this proposal has for our more general understanding of case, agreement, and the EPP.

Keywords:   case, agreement, EPP, movement, Zulu, Bantu languages
