According to the following cases, there are some cases in which there is "no agreement with the subject" (either the agreement is with the object or there is no agreement at all):- If no direct object complement (DOC), then agreement with subject (elle s'est brûlée);
- If DOC before verb, then agreement with DOC (les doigts qu'elle s'est brûlés);
- If DOC after verb, then no agreement (elle s'est brûlé les doigts);
- If body parts are with à, then no DOC, then agreement with subject (il s'est brûlé aux doigts; elle s'est brûlée aux doigts; ils se sont brûlés aux doigts; elles se sont brûlées aux doigts)
