There is a broad range of theoretical proposals regarding the implementation of the feature-copying or feature-matching operation that must lie behind the phenomenon of agreement in natural language. A particularly current subtopic in this broader landscape of theoretical debate concerns whether features in a single bundle can get their values from independent targets— the ‘All-or-nothing’ question (Bejar 2008). In this preliminary investigation, data from Hiaki DPs illustrate a case in which features on a single X° are valued by separate controllers, and raise locality issues for theories of concord and agreement.
