In Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG), syntactic agreement is primarily modelled as sharing or co-specification of agreement features at the level of f(unctional)-structure, which represents abstract grammatical relations and their properties, rather than at the level of constituency or phrase structure. LFG’s projection architecture also accommodates a multi-dimensional approach. While many agreement relations refer solely to f-structure notions, others may also refer to or depend on further constraints at other levels of representation. Since evidence suggests that Archi is morphologically ergative, agreement generalizations can be modelled by means of parameterized templates called by lexical entries. This lexical treatment allows agreement across the lexicon to be specified in a succinct manner while allowing for lexical idiosyncrasy.

Keywords:   Archi, Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG), agreement, f(unctional)-structure, parameterized templates, lexical entries
