Description: We report the results from three experiments investigating German speakers' agreement pref-erences with complex subjects joined by the correlative conjunctions sowohl…als auch ('both…and'), weder…noch ('neither…nor') or entweder…oder ('either…or'). We examine to what extent conjunction type and a conjunct's relative proximity to the verb affect the acceptability and processibility of singular vs. plural agreement.
