Samenvatting

This chapter discusses Complementizer Agreement (CA): agreement between the complementizer introducing an embedded finite clause and the subject of that embedded clause. CA is mainly found in Frisian and the nonstandard varieties of Dutch and German. This chapter discusses the morphological properties of CA, in particular the (defectivity of) its paradigm, the relation between the CA paradigm and the verbal agreement paradigm, and the relation between the agreement on the complementizer, clitics, and pro-drop. It also goes into the syntactic properties of CA: its distribution in the left periphery and the relation between the subject and the complementizer.
