Title: Case Marking and Reanalysis: Grammatical Relations from Old to Early Modern English
Written By: Cynthia L. Allen
Description:

English underwent sweeping changes to its inflectional system in the Middle English period and it is widely assumed that the loss of case-marking distinctions had profound consequences for the syntax of the language. Allen here makes a detailed study of these changes, questioning the results of previous analyses which, she argues, posit too direct a link between the morphological and syntactic changes.
