      As many people know, English has a particularly impoverished case system. This means that we don't see much evidence of (overt) case to mark grammatical function (like subject or object). If you've got a sentence like Mary saw Jim, then you know from the word order that it was Mary (the subject) doing the seeing.

    In this paper I present a view of case marking that explicitly rejects a commonly assumed position that its primary function is to merely distinguish arguments from one another (cf. Comrie , ; Dixon , ), while marking them according to their specific semantic or pragmatic functions is a Cited by: 9.

As most of the concepts coming from traditional grammar ‘case’ is multiply ambiguous (see Blake ; see also Spencer, this volume, for discus-sion). In a narrow sense it pertains to morphological case, but the term ‘case marking’ is frequently used to cover also alternative means of encoding grammatical relations .

This book is a detailed study of the grammatical relations of Pali, a Middle Indo-Aryan language which is also the canonical language of the theravada-Buddhists of Sri Lanka and Southeast : Rajesh Bhatt.

However the scrutiny of certain syntactic constructions such as converbal clause chaining or coordinate conjunction reduction shows that they are not necessarily sensitive to the basic grammatical relations (Bickel & Yādava ), in other words, the notion of pivot is not fully operational in the IA languages.

This chapter gives an overview of the current state of the art of research on ergativity in Indo-Aryan. First, it discusses a number of theoretical and terminological issues concerning synchronic and diachronic dimensions of ergative alignment and outlines a typology for exploring the relationship between ergativity and other alignment types with particular reference to the South-Asian.

On the basis of constructions which are demonstrably sensitive to grammatical relations, viz. verb agreement, gapping in nonfinite clauses, control constructions and matrix-coding (‘raising. In the introductory paper “Ergativity in Indo-Aryan and beyond” (1–37), the editors offer, in their words, “an overview of the current state of the art of research on ergativity in Indo-Aryan” (p.

The chapter starts off with general introductory remarks on ergative alignment, drawing on a number of classical. These language groups, the syntactically ergative and Philippine languages, allow an inverse mapping in the prominence of the two highest terms between argument structure and grammatical relations.

A level of argument structure is shown to be particularly well motivated by the examination of syntactically ergative languages. A fresh look at grammatical relations in Indo-Aryan On the basis of constructions which are demonstrably sensitive to grammatical relations, viz.

verb agreement, gapping in nonfinite clauses, control constructions and matrix-coding (‘raising’), we argue that these relations are defined as ‘nominative or ergative S/A’ in Maithili and Cited by: Grammatical Relations in Ali and the Emergence of Ergativity in Indo-Aryan.

As the Indo-Aryan language family has played a paramount role in recent theories of Ergativity and of alignment typology and change, this volume is highly relevant to experts working on these languages and to scholars interested in grammatical relations and it will figure in all future debates in these fields.

In developing a theory that incorporates grammatical relations as primitives, crucial use is made of the notion of Accessibility Hierarchy (Keenan and Comrie ).' It is In this regard that the phenomenon of Ergativity is discussed in relationally-based grammatical literature ( by: This paper presents an attempt to investigate the origins of ergativity in Iranian languages, drawing upon diachronic and synchronic analyses.

In so doing, I will trace the development of the ergative structure back to Old and Middle Persian where, it is argued, the roots of ergativity lie. I will specifically show that the ergative pattern as currently obtained in the grammatical structure of Cited by: 3. Pandharipande Rajeshwari, Kachru Yamuna.

In linguistics, grammatical relations (also called grammatical functions, grammatical roles, or syntactic functions) are functional relationships between constituents in a clause. The standard examples of grammatical functions from traditional grammar are subject, direct object, and indirect object.

In recent times, the syntactic functions (more generally referred to as grammatical relations). SCREEN VERSION: The Verbal Syntax and Ergativity of Georgian: It is relatively unusual among languages of the world to find examples of what is called mixed ergativity; this phenomenon occurs when some syntactical elements of a language can be ascribed to an ergative-absolutive typology, but others must be considered part of a nominative-accusative structure.

In recent years grammatical relations have come to play a prominent role in linguistic theories. This volume brings together papers that address a variety of theoretical issues involving grammatical relations, drawing on data from a broad range of natural languages.

Grammatical relations Grammatical relations must be carefully distinguished from thematic roles. In what follows, we illustrate three grammatical relations: subject, first object, and second object. The apparent contradiction between the existence of second objects and the binary-branching hypothesis is discussed in Chapter 7.These language groups, the syntactically ergative and Philippine languages, allow an inverse mapping in the prominence of the two highest terms between argument structure and grammatical relations.
