Sigwan at PLC43 in Philly

March 22-24 at the 43rd Penn Linguistics Colloquium, Sigwan Thivierge argues for Expanding the agreement domain in Georgian. Addressing a puzzle about the distribution of the Georgian plural marker -t, especially in the inverse agreement paradigm, Sigwan argues that licensing requirements on 1st/2nd person objects force these objects to move to a high position where they block number agreement. The analysis in turn implies that the vP phase is unlocked when there is no vP-peripheral target for agreement.
