Book Information

   

Title: Case
Written By: Barry J. Blake
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521807611
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Case is an accessible introduction for students of linguistics to the ways
relations between words in sentences are marked in languages. Case is
fundamental to the whole system of language. One of its most interesting
features is the recurrence of apparently idiosyncratic patterns and devices
in otherwise unrelated languages. This book picks out these recurring
strategies and explores their significance. It provides the background
against which the case-marking of particular languages can be best
understood. In this revised edition, Blake refines and expands on his
discussions of the most important concepts in the study of case, taking
into account recent developments in the field. It incorporates significant
additions to the data and includes a thoroughly revised section on abstract
case in the Chomskyan paradigm.
