I was out looking at grammars today ( haven't bought any for a few years)
and it seems that all those I've found that are new are 5 case system
grammars.  ATR pushed the 8 case system and I thought many thought highly of
his work and scholarship enough to follow it.  The newer scholarship must
have reasons for going back to the 5 case system like the Classical Greek
grammars do/did.  Is there any discussion on this by those who have kept up
on this aspect of the research?
