Jakobson, R.O. (1936/84)

Abstract

(= Surrey 50) Case syncretism in the Russian noun is used to support the conception that cases are entities with an invariant general meaning, which is defined in terms of marking for four semantic features: (a) directionality: accusative, dative; (b) scope: genitive I, genitive II, locative I, locative II; (c) peripherality: instrumental, dative, locative I, locative II; (d) shaping: genitive II, locative II – while nominative remains unmarked. Possible and impossible syncretic patterns are defined in terms of these features.
