Title: Case and Grammatical Relations
Subtitle: Studies in honor of Bernard Comrie
Edited By: GrevilleG.Corbett
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2081
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 81
Description:

The papers in this volume can be grouped into two broad, overlapping
classes: those dealing primarily with case and those dealing primarily with
grammatical relations. With regard to case, topics include descriptions of
the case systems of two Caucasian languages, the problems of determining
how many cases Russian has and whether Hungarian has a case system at all,
the issue of case-combining, the retention of the dative in Swedish
dialects, and genitive objects in the languages of Europe. With regard to
grammatical relations, topics include the order of obliques in OV and VO
languages, the effects of the referential hierarchy on the distribution of
grammatical relations, the problem of whether the passive requires a
subject category, the relation between subjecthood and definiteness, and
the issue of how the loss of case and aspectual systems triggers the use of
compensatory mechanisms in heritage Russian.
