Omer on Sakha Case in NLLT

Now out in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory, Omer Preminger's “Case in Sakha: are two modalities really necessary?", co-authored with Theodore Levin. The paper argues against the 2010 claim from Baker & Vinokurva that Sakha, a Siberian Turkic language, requires two modes of case assignment, both by configurational rules and by functional heads, and shows that rules of the former sort are sufficient.
