    The personal pronouns of Modern English retain morphological case more strongly than any other word class (a remnant of the more extensive case system of Old English). For other pronouns, and all nouns, adjectives, and articles, grammatical function is indicated only by word order, by prepositions, and by the " Saxon genitive " (-'s). 3 Case and Middle English Genitive Noun Phrases; 4 Split Constituents within NP in the History of English: Commentary on Allen; 5 Inflectional Morphology and the Loss of Verb-Second In English; 6 The Rise of the To−Dative in Middle English; 7 Double Object and Morphological Triggers for Syntactic Case.

      However, a distinction has to be made between morphological case, which is marked by inflection, and with abstract case. Morphological case is absent in English except in the cases of certain pronouns (I/me, who/whom, etc.). In other nominal expressions, it is not. Consider: (1a) The dog bit him. (1b) The dog bit the boy. English is a West Germanic language that originated from Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain in the mid 5th to 7th centuries AD by Anglo-Saxon migrants from what is now northwest Germany, southern Denmark and the Anglo-Saxons settled in the British Isles from the mid-5th century and came to dominate the bulk of southern Great Britain.

Ans van Kemenade. Syntactic case and morphological case in the history of English. It is a long-standing though controversial claim that morphological case has syntactic effects.

In particular, word order freedom has been argued to be dependent on the presence of overt case markers. Thus, Latin and Classical Greek have both a rich case system and very free word order, while languages like Dutch and English lack both.

If there is a connection between morphological case and. However, this simple relationship between morphological case (‘m-case’) and syntactic case (‘s-case’) is often violated. This article deals with the morphological expression of case. First, it discusses different types of morphological case system, and then case morphology and grammatical theory.

Book Description: In this book, David Pesetsky argues that the peculiarities of Russian nominal phrases provide significant clues concerning the syntactic side of morphological case. Pesetsky argues against the traditional view that case categories such as nominative or genitive have a special status in the grammar of human languages.

The term arose in historical linguistics, referring to the convergence of morphological forms within inflectional such cases, a former distinction has been 'syncretized'.

The term syncretism is often used when a fairly regular pattern can be observed. general works dealing with English or morphology or both. Of the available books on English morphology in particular, Bauer () delves deepest into issues of linguistic theory (although a now somewhat dated version of it), and offers useful discussion and case-studies of fashions in derivational morphology.

Marchand () is factually. English students are expected to understand about the history of morphology. And also about morphological interface, it is crucial in the study of word-structure.

Finally, this assignment has been finished, even thought we got a bit problem at the first arrangement. In this article I examine the effects of morphological case on the position of objects in Old English, in terms of both formal syntactic accounts and functional explanations.
