Case and the theory of case is one of the central concepts in modern
generative syntax. Case links the arguments to the predicates within
the clause, forces nominal expressions to move and to surface in
specific positions, and, in some languages, encodes the referential
properties of the nominal expressions. However, languages make use of
overt case distinctions to a very varied degree, which leaves the
proper formulation of principles that bring these aspects together
with many open questions. The contributions in this volume offer
analyses of case phenomena in a broad range of languages within
different modern frameworks. Novel treatments of case are also
proposed, inviting further discussion and development of the topic.
