Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Bloom, Douglas B. (1999)

Abstract

(= Surrey 15) It is observed that Russian nouns with nominative-accusative syncretism do not show the same freedom in word order that other nouns do, even if other inflected elements in the clause make its case function unambiguous. This phenomenon is subject to an analysis in terms of Constructive Case in the LFG framework, the case syncretism being attributed to disjunctive marking of both nominative and accusative.
