Sažetak

In this paper, we discuss the asymmetry in agreement between conjunction and disjunction, and consider possible reasons for the lack of resolved agreement in disjunctions as compared to conjunctions. We provide evidence from agreement that disjunction sentences are not derived through local agreement and ellipsis, and argue in favour of a syntactic symmetry between conjunctions and disjunctions by showing that resolved agreement is present in some disjunctions.
