A note on parallels between agreement and intervention
This note explores the parallelisms between the constraints on syntactic agreement and the properties found in intervention configurations of the type studied in the literature on acquisition. It is argued that the similarities between them make it possible to hypothesize that one single syntactic mechanism is responsible for the two types of effects, which reinforces a generalized featural approach to syntactic dependencies.
