Example text

But we can already see Early Case Grammar 39 from these representations that apparently not all instances of ‘cases’ are marked by a preposition. I take this up again in a moment. Part of the restrictions on what arguments a verb can take is speciWed in terms of the set of semantic relations it can co-occur with in a proposition, its ‘case frame’. ) The content of the ‘case’ node percolates down into its kasus and noun phrase constituents; and this may be reXected in, for example, choice of preposition, so that by is, among other things, a marker of A.

And he simply discounts as ‘discredited’ one of the attempts to arrive at a semantic deWnition of ‘case’ as a category, namely the ‘localist theory’ (to which we shall return in Chapters 5 and 6). The observations made in such studies as Kuryłowicz’s also undermine attempts to describe cases in terms of simple paradigmatic oppositions, as proposed by Jakobson (1936), for instance.

All the cases other than the nominative are more generally and obviously mixed, however, and cannot simply be identiWed with the expression of some supposed ‘grammatical relation’. As we shall see, work within the ‘case grammar’ framework of the twentieth century, as well as related work, indeed supports an even more radical result: the elimination, or at least marginalization, of grammatical relations such as ‘direct object’ and ‘indirect object’, and so of the description of cases such as the accusative and dative as ‘grammatical’.
