Project: Research

Project Details

Layman's description

The use of nominative and oblique case varies in Modern Swedish (Hon är större än JAG/MIG, etc.), and the variation is more widespread across different constructions than commonly noticed. The project will study the case distribution in common spoken and written Swedish and advance a theory of the variation and the historical development.
