Morphological Case and Word Order in Old English.
Pintzuk, Susan
Language Sciences, v24 n3-4 p381-95 May-Jul 2002
Examines the effects of morphological case on the position of objects in Old English in terms of both formal syntactic accounts and functional explanations. Quantitative analysis of Old English clauses with non-finite main verbs and noun phrase objects demonstrates that overt case-marking, whether ambiguous or unambiguous, has no effect on the position of the object with respect to the verb.
