Agreement and Case Assignment in Polish: An Attempt at a Unified Account

Krzysztof Czuba and Adam Przepiórkowski

Technical Report 783, IPI PAN (Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences), 1995.

We present a unified HPSG account of two important phenomena in Polish, namely agreement and case assignment. The analysis of agreement is concerned with both NP-internal and subject-verb agreement, as well as with describing the exact repertory of agreeing categories in a non-redundant way. The analysis of case assignment deals with context-dependent case variation and with case assignment in numeral phrases. The interaction of these analyses leads to a successful account of such ill-behaved phenomena as third person singular neuter verb `agreement' with numeral subject.
