About this product
- DescriptionIn Case, Mark Baker develops a unified theory of how the morphological case marking of un phrases is determined by syntactic structure. Designed to work well for languages of all alignment types - accusative, ergative, tripartite, marked minative, or marked absolutive - this theory has been developed and tested against unrelated languages of each type, and more than twenty n-Indo-European languages are considered in depth. While affirming that case can be assigned to un phrases by function words under agreement, the theory also develops in detail a second mode of case assignment: so-called dependent case. Suitable for academic researchers and students, the book employs formal-generative concepts yet remains clear and accessible for a general linguistics readership.
