MODERN GRAMMARS

John M. Anderson
Modern Grammars of Case

This book addresses fundamental issues in linguistic theory, including the relation between formal and cognitive approaches, the autonomy of syntax, and the content of universal grammar. Professor Anderson focuses on the grammar of case relations and, after a critical history of modern grammars of case, explores unresolved issues in the field, including the degree to which syntactic categories are grounded in meaning and the notion of linguistic creativity. He sheds new light on the interactions between meaning and grammar. His argument will interest linguists, philosophers, and cognitive scientists.
