Here verbal agreement does not co-occur with a topic ali zed subject; prepositional agreement appears, however, when its object is fronted. I contend that this data is simply a reflection of the fact that overt AGR is required in (27) to insure the proper government of the trace functioning as the object of the preposition. 8 On the other hand, the trace in (26) can be antecedent governed by the complementizer a, and the A void Pronoun Principle will block the appearance of overt agreement.

I preview the general line of that analysis in the following paragraphs. While affirmative sentences do not exhibit verbal agreement with a preverbal NP or pronoun, negative sentences do. (21) a.
