Agreement Beyond

Apr 8, 2021 von

Much attention in theoretical linguistics in generative and minimalist traditions addresses issues directly or indirectly related to movement. The EPP (extended projection principle) introduced by Chomsky in 1981 seemed to coincide with the morphological agreement, and the agreement played a central role as the driving force behind movement and other close syntax operations. In this book, Shigeru Miyagawa continues his study of an accounting equivalent for an agreement in unsealed languages such as Japanese. Miyagawa expanded his theory of strong uniformity in his previous book Why Agree? Why move? The uniformity of agreement-based languages based on debate configuration (MIT Press). It argues that languages of concordance and agreement are combined with an expanded view of grammatical characteristics, including phi characteristics and characteristics of the subject`s conversational configuration and focus. It examines different combinations of these two grammatical characteristics in a number of languages and phenomena, including allocative concordance, root phenomena, current events, „why“ questions and fall changes. This book offers an impressive extension of the strong uniformity: apply in „unsealed“ languages Compliance principles for speech configurations δ characteristics, as they do for „Characteristics“ in contractual languages. Shigeru Miyagawa analyzes languages as different as Basque, Chinese, Japanese, Jingpo and Newari, and is an elegant and compelling argument in favor of this exciting perspective. A recent study [12] examined the Inter-Rater agreement for specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in 84 children who, for one reason or another, underwent full-body MRI in a large public hospital. Two radiologists who blinded each other reported all the lesions they identified in each patient. A third radiologist linked these independent surveys and identified all the unique lesions and therefore consistent and contradictory diagnoses.

A total of 249 different lesions were detected in 58 children (the remaining 26 had normal MRI scans); 76 disagreed and 173 agreed (Table 2). Hands-free kappa is calculated from the total number of observations (b and c) and positive (d) consistent observations made in all patients in 2d/(b -c-2d).
