Case agreement is not an essential feature of English (only personal pronouns and pronouns with a case mark). The correspondence between these pronouns can sometimes be observed: Sagittarius, Carson T. 1997. INFL in the language of children and adults: agreement, case and license.

The verbs must correspond in class with their subjects and objects, and the adjectives with the nouns they describe. For example: Kitabu kimoja kitatosha (One book will suffice), Mchungwa mmoja utatosha (An orange will be enough), Chungwa moya litatosha (An orange will be enough). Wlotko, E.

NeuroImage, 62, 356-366. doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2012.04.054 Studies on speech production have shown: that one of the main determinants of verb-tuning marking is the mental representation of the numerical characteristic of the NP subject as a whole, which is a product of the grammatical specification of nostantime counter-data in the subject NP and encrypted conceptual information from the message to be conveyed (p.B, Carreiras, Meseguer, 2012; Eberhard, 1997, 1999; Humphreys and Bock, 2005). This line of research has been formalized in a model called Marking and Morphing (MM; Eberhard, Cutting, Bock, 2005). Although much of the empirical data for the MM model comes from the study of the interference effects of nouns embedded in complex thematic NPs (effects “Convention of Attraction”: Bock-Miller, 1991), the model makes general predictions about how the agreement is calculated in production, where information from each name in the sentence can provide information potentially relevant to the representation of the NP number and the calculation of verbal concordance. Two characteristics of the model are important to this study and warrant description. First, within MM, the mental representation of the entire numerical characteristic of the entire NP subject is not discrete, but is constantly appreciated, so that some PNs may be more “pluralistic” than others. In this way, the relative plurality of the entire NP determines the probability of creating a verb with multiple characters. Eberhard, K.M.
