1 Cynthia L. Allen. Case Marking and Reanalysis: Grammatical Relations from Old to Early Modern English.
Oxford, etc.: Oxford University Press, 1999 0198238673 / 9780198238676 First Paperback Edition Paperback Used: Like New Paperback 
Series: Oxford Linguistics. Trade Paperback. xviii, 509 pp. Tables, bibliography, index; text clean, unmarked. Printed wrappers; binding square and tight, minor soiling to bottom edge of text block, covers curling at corners, otherwise an excellent, unread copy. Near Fine. English underwent sweeping changes to its inflectional system in the Middle English period and it is widely assumed that the loss of case-marking distinctions had profound consequences for the syntax of the language. Allen here makes a detailed study of these changes, questioning the results of previous analyses which, she argues, posit too direct a link between the morphological and syntactic changes.
