In Turkish nominal phrases and clauses where a coordinated possessor or subject is related to agreement morphology on the possessee or the nominalized predicate, respectively, agreement is realized either in full or in partial expression. The choice between the two is determined in certain cases by syntactic phenomena, suggesting that agreement must figure in syntax. However, partial possessor agreement appears to result from a relationship between the possessee or nominalized predicate, and the last conjunct only, hinting that it is also subject to linear locality conditions. We conclude that the agreement phenomenon in languages results from conditions that apply in syntax proper and from conditions that apply in a post-syntactic component separately, which can alter the output of syntax proper where applicable.
