Disagreement With Noun Phrase

The data helps identify a plural castration norm that is displayed in agreement with two male conjunctions or two female conjunctions where the masculine plural or the feminine plural would have been expected. Based on the data, I continue to show that the agreement hierarchy makes correct predictions for the distribution of resolution against partial agreement. A partial agreement is not reached to the extent provided for in previous reports on the Icelandic agreement. It is interesting to note that the regularization of castration is the most widely used singular option, regardless of the sexual combination of conjunctions. The distribution of this option depends on the hierarchy of correspondences (neutrum Singular is more common in personnel pronouns than in predicatories) and the hierarchy of the individual (most often in countless abstract conjunctions). I will argue for an analysis of the singular neutrum as a standard semantic chord triggered by low-individual speakers. A similar pattern is found in the Faroe Islands, where the singular neutrum often occurs in the language with indeterminate mass nouns, as shown (14a) that subject-verb concordance errors occur with some regularity, both in spoken and written languages (Jespersen, 1913/1961); Visser, 1963; Quirk et al., 1985; Bock and Miller, 1991). In innovative work, Bock and Miller (1991) triggered laboratory errors by presenting participants with sentence beginnings or preambles and asking them to repeat them and create a sentence ending containing a verb. The results showed that conformity errors occur when a singular head is modified by a prepositional sentence containing a plural subnun (usually called a local noun, or, if plural, the attractor); z.B. The key to the closets was shiny. The error is not simply due to the fact that the participants forget the head and apply the “local” agreement between the attractor and the verb, because the keys in the closet do not cause errors at the same speed. One explanation for the difference is that the singular is considered the norm: a plural is derived from the singular by adding a marked characteristic, and this plural characteristic has an autonomy that allows it to penetrate the numerical specification of a verb. Since that first study, much of the research has investigated the types of variables that affect the production of compliance errors, which have led to refinement and the development of syntactic coding operations in voice production.

3. ^Linear modelling of mixed effects showed a major effect of the local noun number (estimate = − 2.2065, SE = 0.4521, z = −4.880, p = 1.06e-06); the effect of the number of owners was not significant (p = 0.125). The “local noun number” effect was still significant when random slopes per participant and element were taken into account by local reference number (estimate = 0.08809, SE = 0.02499, t = -3.525, p = 0.001431). A comparison of the models (with the X2 trials) showed that the integration of the random slope of the local noun number provided a better adaptation to the data. In the following pages, I will present the results, starting with the over-compliance of the figures, and then with the choice of agreement between the sexes. Section 4.1 shows the distribution of plural over-compliance, singular over-alignment and prevention with associated substantive sentences. Section 4.2 is devoted to illustrating the genres used in plural surreality, highlighting cases of Neutrum plural surreality with substantive sentences associated with M + M and F + F . . . .
