Title: Modern Grammars of Case
Written By: John M. Anderson

This book addresses fundamental issues in linguistic theory, including the
relation between formal and cognitive approaches, the autonomy of syntax,
and the content of universal grammar. Professor Anderson focuses on the
grammar of case relations and, after a critical history of modern grammars
of case, explores unresolved issues in the field, including the degree to
which syntactic categories are grounded in meaning and the notion of
linguistic creativity. He sheds new light on the interactions between
meaning and grammar. His argument will interest linguists, philosophers,
and cognitive scientists.
