Title: Case, Animacy and Semantic Roles
Edited By: Seppo Kittilä
Katja Västi
Jussi Ylikoski
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/tsl.99
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 99
Description:

The chapters of this volume scrutinize the interplay of different combinations of
case, animacy and semantic roles, thus contributing to our understanding of
these notions in a novel way. The focus of the chapters lies on showing how
animacy affects argument marking. Unlike previous studies, these chapters
primarily deal with lesser studied phenomena, such as animacy effects on
spatial cases and the differences between cases and adpositions in the coding
of spatial relations. In addition, theoretical and diachronic issues related to case
and semantic roles are also discussed; for example, what is case, how do
cases develop and what are the functional differences between cases and
adpositions? The chapters deal with a variety of different languages including
Uralic languages, Indo-European languages, Basque, Korean and Vaeakau-
Taumako. The book is appealing to anyone interested in case, animacy and/or
semantic roles.
