Case and word order in Lithuanian infinitival clauses revisited
This paper considers the Lithuanian constructions with the Dative and Genitive marking of direct objects of transitive verbs in purpose infinitival clauses, studied in Franks and Lavine (2006). I adduce empirical evidence and conceptual arguments both speaking against the analysis proposed by Franks and Lavine (2006), and argue for a different account based on recent “non-orthodox” proposals in case theory. My analysis of the Lithuanian constructions is inspired by a typological comparison with Australian languages possessing “complementizing” and “associating” case marking and morphological case-stacking. I propose that the mechanism of multiple case assignment in syntax is operative in Lithuanian and show how it can naturally account for the Dative-plus-Infinitive and Genitive-plus-Infinitive constructions.
