Title: Case, Argument Structure, and Word Order
Written By: Shigeru Miyagawa
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415878593/
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

Over the years, a major strand of Miyagawa's research has been to study how
syntax, case marking, and argument structure interact. In particular, Miyagawa's
work addresses the nature of the relationship between syntax and argument
structure, and how case marking and other phenomena help to elucidate this
relationship. In this collection of new and revised pieces, Miyagawa expands
and develops new analyses for numeral quantifier stranding, ditransitive
constructions, nominative/genitive alternation, "syntactic" analysis of lexical
and syntactic causatives, and historical change in the accusative case marking
from Old Japanese to Modern Japanese. All of these analyses demonstrate an
intimate relation among case marking, argument structure, and word order.
