Title: Theories of Case
Written By: Miriam Butt
Description:

Case, a system which marks the relationships between words in a sentence,
is fundamental to every language. Looking at how different theories of
syntax have accounted for the distribution of case across languages, this
accessible textbook introduces the various approaches to case that have
been proposed in modern linguistics. Clearly organised into topics, it
provides beginning students with a solid understanding of the ideas behind
the development of theories of case. For the more advanced reader, it
presents theories that have been formulated about the interaction between
case morphology, argument structure, grammatical relations and semantics,
and offers a detailed cross-theoretical discussion of how these are
motivated. Each chapter contains practical exercises, encouraging students
to engage with the ideas discussed. Drawing on data from a wide range of
languages and pooling together a variety of perspectives, Theories of Case
is essential reading for all those studying this important area of
linguistics.
