Patient and Agent Orientation in Passive and Active Voice Sentences of English and Portuguese. Or: How Much of a Case? Or: Left without a Trace
Brakel, C. Arthur
Linguistics, 180, 5-25, Sep 76
The purpose of this paper is to examine process- and agent-oriented sentences from the point of view of two theories of grammatical description: case grammar after Fillmore and tranformational grammar with modifications introduced by Chomsky. Subject and object functions are reflected in the initial structures of sentence derivation, regardless of the theoretical framework. (Author/CFM)
