Abstract

We investigate the production of subject and object who and which-questions in the Italian of 4-5 year olds and report a subject/object asymmetry observed in other studies. We argue that this asymmetry stems from interference of the object copy on the AGREE relation between AgrS and the subject in Spec vP.
