Mark Baker in this week’s Linguistic Flash Mob

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

The debate revolves around the following three questions/points:

  • 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

You can catch it on the series’ YouTube channel, where you can also find Viviane Deprez (Faculty) and Hedde Zeiljstra (G√∂ttingen) debating Negation.
