Iver,

I read your post. All of it. One thing you said didn't quite register.

Could you elaborate on "but not a semantic case?"  Are you saying that
constituents in the genitive case do not perform semantic functions?
Somehow, I don't think you would say that so what I am wondering is . . .

Thanks for a clear, well organized presentation on a complex topic. A model
of lucid thinking.

Clay
