Abstract
Taking the perspective that Spanish proper nouns with epithet(e.g., Alfonso X el Sabio ‘Alfonso X the Wise’) are syntactically derived as a starting point, this article focuses on the analysis of the properties of their constituents and their formation processes. The predicative relation that epithets establish with proper nouns and the absolute superlative interpretation of the individuallevel properties denoted by epithets are shown to be determined in the course of syntactic derivation. Agreement taking place in these constructions corroborates the current approach drawing on the recently developed feature sharing view of Agree.
