Another important issue is whether one can dispense with one of the structural conditions, Spechead or c-command (Agree). I put this issue aside as it is not relevant to main topic of the paper. However, it is possible that both may be needed (see Benmamoun 1996). This has its own implications in light of recent discussions of agreement such as Chomsky (2000). 5.
