Example text

B. ’ (47) Numerals in Slovak with lexical case assigning verbs: a. Spreneveril som sa piatim priatel’om/ *priatel’ov. ’ b. Opovrhujem piatimi ucˇitel’mi/ *ucˇitel’ov. ’ (48) Numerals in BCS with lexical case assigning verbs: a. Imponavati/imponirati dv(ij)ema d(j)evojkama/ *d(j)evojke. ’ b. Ja upravljam dvema provincijama/ *provincije. ’ If we assume, in the spirit of Babby (1987), among others, that the genitive Case assigned within the QP in examples (42)–(44) above is a structural Case, then the examples under (46)–(48) illustrate that—like the GN—such Case assignment is blocked in the presence of a lexical case assigner.

They do not claim that all languages have semantic case (English, for instance, does not), but rather they suggest that the theory needs to allow for the existence of such a phenomenon. 35 However, the insight that certain C/case alternations are associated with a particular interpretation and that these C/cases do not constitute lexical cases is an important one. My goal in this section is to outline some additional C/case-marking patterns in the Slavic languages that I assume do not constitute instances of lexical case assignment.

Lit. ’) (Cuervo 2003: 16–17) (77) Directional (‘from’) transitive verbs (þsource) in Czech: a. Ukradl me´mu kamara´dovi padesa´t korun. ’ (lit. ’) b. Vzal mu take´ pas a peneˇzˇenku. ’ (lit. ’) (Naughton 2005: 198–9) This dative case-marking pattern also falls into the inherent dative casemarking patterns discussed above: it is predictable and it cannot be overridden by structural Case assignment. I therefore assume that the dative case with these ‘directional (from) verbs’ in Czech also constitutes an inherent case, not a lexical one.
