Abstract

(= Surrey 58) A discussion of the expansion of the use of the genitive case form for the accusative in the relative pronoun koji. According to the normative standard, the only context where this should occur is when the antecedent is animate being of the masculine gender. However, in non-standard speech and writing there has been a growing tendency to extend this to inanimates, even those of the neuter gender. This is partly attributable to the existence of genitive-accusative syncretism in the third person pronoun, where it obtains for masculines and neuters regardless of animacy.
