This study investigates the putative relation between C and T on the basis of three configurations in Arabic varieties, and challenges this relation: (i) C and T can agree with the same goal, but bear different values, (ii) C and T may agree with different goals, (iii) embedded constructions with finite, agreeing T but no higher projections, e.g. Neg or C. These phenomena provide robust evidence that C and T must each be endowed with a discrete set of ɸ-features.
