Does English Really Have Case?
Hudson, Richard
Journal of Linguistics, v31 n2 p375-92 Sep 1995
This paper presents evidence that English may be a completely caseless language, like Chinese, contrary to the widely held view that distinct pronoun forms and the genitive "'s" involve morphological case. It argues that "I" and "me" are both personal pronouns whereas "my,""mine," and "'s" are possessive pronouns. Contains 31 references. (MDM)
