Title: The Oxford Handbook of Case
Edited By: Andrej L. Malchukov
Andrew Spencer
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199206476
Description:

This handbook provides a comprehensive account of current research on case
and the morphological and syntactic phenomena associated with it. The
semantic roles and grammatical relations indicated by case are fundamental
to the whole system of language and have long been a central concern of
descriptive and theoretical linguistics. The book opens with the editors'
synoptic overview of the main lines of research in the field, which sets
out the main issues, challenges, and debates. Some sixty scholars from all
over the world then report on the state of play in theoretical,
typological, diachronic, and psycholinguistic research. They assess
cross-linguistic work on case and case-systems and evaluate a variety of
theoretical approaches. They examine current issues and debates from
historical, areal, socio-linguistic and psycholinguistic perspectives. The
final part of the book consists of a set of overviews of case systems
representative of some of the world's major language families.

The book is fully cross-referenced, referenced, and indexed. It will be of
central interest to all scholars and advanced students of syntax and
morphology as well as to those working in associated subjects in semantics,
typology, and psycholinguistics.
