The main purpose of this study was to examine affected individual and support person agreement on the impact of UI on affected individuals' QOL.
The main purpose of this pilot study was to examine affected individual and support person agreement on the impact of urinary incontinence on affected individuals' quality of life.
Under the assumption that the person agreement and d- both designate the empathy locus, (62) should involve a conflict.
The system in Navajo is a "hybrid", in that it also has person agreement with GF encoding; a possible linking problem arises only when both arguments are third person, and only in this case does the empathy-based word order play a significant role in the linking resolution.
In languages like Cree which do not have GF-based person agreement or case-marking, on the other hand, the direction marking is functionally motivated in all person combinations to resolve the surface form/semantic role linking.
This is in fact not surprising given the fact that the absence of an overt person agreement marker in a verbal construction with tense or aspect morphology almost always corresponds to the 3rd person singular in Turkish.
This once again suggests that Turkish speakers need to recuperate a person agreement marker when processing verbal constructions as morphological words.

Blocking of less specific VIs is achieved by independently motivated alignment constraints, such as NUM [right arrow] R that aligns all number agreement VIs to the right edge of the spellout domain (roughly the morphological word), and L [left arrow] J PER that aligns person agreement to the left edge of the spellout domain.
Nonetheless this approach makes strong empirical predictions: number agreement should tend to be at the right edge of words, person agreement at the left edge.
19 However, the preference for 2nd person over 3rd person agreement has systematical exceptions for cases such as (65a), and no other place in the paradigm shows systematic preference for absolutive agreement.
At first sight, person agreement appears not to be an interesting issue; informal observation strongly suggests that person agreement in Dutch and German, the two languages studied in the present article, hardly ever derails.
Furthermore, establishing corresponding evidence in two languages, German and Dutch, is important because the anecdotal evidence on deviations of person agreement resolution rules has until now been constrained to German (and French, cf.
Or does the person agreement process systematically deviate from these resolution rules even though they are known to the speakers?
