Title: Case Grammar Applied
Written By: Walter A Cook
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9781556710469
Series Title: Publications in Linguistics #127
Description:

Dr. Walter Cook, S.J., is one of the promoters of the Georgetown University Round Table on Languages and Linguistics and author of numerous publications in linguistics. In CASE GRAMMAR THEORY (1989), the author described the Case Grammar models of Fillmore, Chafe, Anderson, Gruber, Jackendoff, and some tagmemicists as contrasting models within Case Grammar theory. In the present volume, intended as a companion volume to the previous one, we find a methodology for Case Grammar, tested in extended textual analysis including Ernest Hemingway's THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA. Because Case Grammar lends itself well to displaying the way syntactic features are associated with semantic structures, the author is able to use Case Grammar as an unusually clear, simple guide for sentence analysis.
