Case and the theory of case is one of the central concepts in modern generative syntax. Case links the arguments to the predicates within the clause, forces nominal expressions to move and to surface in specific positions, and, in some languages, encodes the referential properties of the nominal expressions. However, languages make use of overt case distinctions to a very varied degree, which leaves the proper formulation of principles that bring these aspects together with many open questions. The contributions in this volume offer analyses of case phenomena in a broad range of languages within different modern frameworks. Novel treatments of case are also proposed, inviting further discussion and development of the topic.
