Poster Presentation for "Low nominative agreement in Uab Meto"

This poster was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
This poster analyzes case and agreement in Uab Meto, an Austronesian language of Timor, Indonesia. Uab Meto has verb agreement and case marking in a nominative-accusative alignment. Languages with these properties typically have a phi-probe on T for agreement. However, Uab Meto agreement is lower, below TAM elements and negation, but still higher than V, v, and Voice. This poster proposes that there is an Agr head immediately above VoiceP that agrees with the closest DP in its c-command domain.
