Abstract:

This book proposes that the two "independent" conditions on argumenthood,
namely, case and referentiality, are strongly correlated and have to be
associated with each other in syntax as syntactic features. It shows that
languages exhibit variation in the way this association is implemented in
their syntax, which presents an explanation for the differences observed in
their phrase structure in terms of (non-)configurationality. Thus, this
book not only presents an innovative overarching theory for case and
referentiality, but also aims to bring a new look at the issues of
(non-)configurationality. It specifically argues for parameterization of
functional categories associated with case and referentiality, which has
certain implications not only for the acquisition but also for the
diachronic development of functional categories. Providing rich comparative
data from typologically different languages such as Turkish, Chinese,
Hungarian, English and Japanese, this book is of particular interest to
typologists as well.
