Is anyone aware of treatments of Biblical Hebrew "case" relations
from modern (ie post-Fillmore) approaches? Muraoka has a short
article on verb complementation in which he notes that direct objects
and prepositional phrases can alternate for some verbs with no
apparent difference in meaning, but he does not interact with the
discussion of case in linguistics.
His student Malessa briefly discusses case in his dissertation on
verbal valence, but he only outlines his theoretical framework
without any discussion of the broader issues and his bibliography
only has references to general works on case.
This is a sub-topic of my dissertation so I would rather not spend
alot of time on it, but if nobody has done much with it yet then I
may have to.
