Verbs in Darai agree in person, number, gender and honorific grade with viable agreement controllers. If the subject corresponds to a possessive phrase, either the possessed noun or possessor can control agreement on the copula under certain conditions. Tentative evidence suggest that this generalisation can be extended to possessors in the complements or objects of other verbs. Little is currently known about the prominence conditions under which possessors can control agreement in Darai.
