Specifier-head agreement (or spec-head agreement) is a notion introduced in Chomsky (1986b) to describe the sharing of phi-features between the head and the specifier of IP. In later work (cf. Chomsky (1991)) the domain of spec-head agreement has been extended to functional categories other than IP.
