In their target article, Lillo-Martin and Meier (this volume) show in detail that verb argument agreement in sign languages has some specific properties that are not found in spoken language agreement. Whereas some properties of verb argument agreement found in both modalities seem to be modality-independent, others seem to depend on the modality of language production and perception (cf. also Rathmann and Mathur 2002).
