The discussion divides into two agreement domains: NP'-internal and NP-external agreement (Lehman 1988:58; Barlow 1992:137, citing Moravcsik 1978:340). Section 2 analyzes internal agreement within the QCS between the first and second terms following the Determiner Phrase analysis of NPs. Section 3 analyzes external agreement between the subject and the verb (mediated by functional heads introduced there). The questions posed above are answered in Section 4, and Section 5 summarizes the argumentation of the preceding sections.

This assumption is required to explain the wider range of agreement patterns in MSA as compared to Modern Hebrew, on the one hand, and, within MSA, between quantified and nonquantified construct states on the other: plainly, nonquantified CSs exhibit fewer agreement patterns because SPEC-head agreement is unavailable in these cases. The highly specific agreement patterns noted by Parkinson seem amenable to differentiation and grouping in terms of the operation of SPEC-head agreement, at least in principle, though further investigation is certainly needed.
