Mark Baker (Faculty) debates Case with Julie Legate (Penn) in this week’s “linguistic flash-mob” on Thursday, 21 Jan, 2021 at noon ET.

- Are direct cases a by-product of Agree or do they derive from the algorithm of dependent case?
- How do you account for ergative vs. accusative alignment?
- Morphological case vs. Syntactic case
