Person agreement is usually restricted to verbal categories. However, Bantu languages permit person agreement on certain adnomial quantifiers. We propose an account of the evolution of person agreement that constrains the cliticization of pronomials to specifier-head relationships. This diachronic view captures the presencr of person agreement in Bantu on adnomial quantifiers as well as verbs.
