Several of the papers collected in the seminal book marking the emergence of LFG (Bresnan 1982) deal with case marking in particular (e.g., Neidle on Russian, KP Mohanan with respect to Malayalam). However, a sophisticated analysis of crosslinguistic case patterns only became available as LFG’s Linking Theory (known as Lexical Mapping Theory) evolved. In particular, once it was recognized on the basis of argumentation by Rappaport (1983) that argument structure needed to be posited as a level of representation that was independent of constituent structure (e.g., very much unlike the assumptions of GB/MP, see Chapter 3), the way was paved for analyses of case to be stated in terms of generalizations over a(rgument)-structure. That is, in terms of generalizations that take both semantic and syntactic factors into account.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-12-13T12:12:13Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
