 "In this paper, I discuss the so-called Complementarity Effect of f-agreement in the Celtic language Breton: Verbal f-agreement is only ever overt if the agreement controller (i.e. the subject) is covert. I argue that this peculiar phenomenon provides an argument that the covertness of the subject should be analysed as being due to syntactic removal rather than due to the presence of a phonologically empty element in the subject position. Theories of pro-drop in terms of an empty pro have no handle to derive why verbs only agree with elements that are phonologically null. In an alternative theory of pro-drop which makes use of the syntactic operation REMOVE, it can be modelled that removal of a pronoun from the subject position leaves the f-features of the pronoun unattached and in accordance with the reintegration property of the operation, these features will be reattached on a functional head that eventually will be realized as a part of the verb.
