Thus, there seems to be a link between VS and verb classes, since only with unaccusatives and in the locative inversion construction (see Chapter 3) is VS fully acceptable. As a matter of fact, Tarallo and Kato (1993), who note the loss of pro-drop properties in Brazilian Portuguese, state in a footnote that "unaccusative VS order is resistant to change because the system still retains the zero expletive" (1993: 111).

Therefore, Chomsky concludes that Agr exists only when it has strong features, being simply the indication of a position that must be occupied by overt movement. The function of Agr is to provide a structural configuration in which features can be checked, but the Case-assigning feature is intrinsic to the heads (V, T) that raise to Agr for checking of DP in [Spec, AgrS], so there is no reason to also assign it to Agr. As for phi-features, if Agr has them, they are [-Interpretable]. The conclusion is that Agr consists only of the strong features that force raising.
