In this talk, we present the findings of our experiments on agreement with disjunctive coordinations in Standard German and we analyze our findings in Optimality Theory. We observe that number agreement resolves to PL unless both disjuncts are SG. With singular disjuncts there is optionality between PL and SG agreement. We develop an account that considers the semantic number feature of disjunction. We also discuss person agreement as well as effects of word order and syncretisms on agreement.
