Title: Case, Valency and Transitivity
Edited By: Leonid Kulikov
Andrej L. Malchukov

Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 77
Description:

The three concepts of case, valency and transitivity belong to the most
discussed topics of modern linguistics. On the one hand, they are crucially
connected with morphological aspects of the clause, including case marking,
person agreement and voice. On the other hand, they are related to several
semantic issues such as the meaning of case, semantico-syntactic verbal
classes, and the semantic correlates of transitivity. The volume unifies
papers written within different theoretical frameworks and representing
variegated approaches (Optimality Theory, Government and Binding, various
versions of the Functional approach, Cross-linguistic and Typological
analyses), containing both numerous new findings in individual languages
and valuable observations and generalizations related to case, valency and
transitivity.
