The third volume in the VARGReB series explores different aspects of varying argument realization in Baltic. It presents original studies on differential marking of both core and non-core verbal arguments, on argument structures of nouns and the encoding of nominal arguments, as well as on constructions reflecting the expansion of argument structure through the addition of causative, resultative or applicative predications. The discussion of phenomena of argument realization and marking often touches on fundamental problems of syntax and the syntax-semantics interface, such as the putative locality of case assignment, event-structural factors determining case marking, the inheritance of argument structure across phrase types, or the status of arguments and adjuncts. The contributions to this volume use different approaches and frameworks to analyze a wealth of authentic data from contemporary Latvian and Lithuanian.

Table of Contents
“This high-quality volume builds directly on the success of the two previous volumes and provides us with more evidence why valency, argument realization and grammatical relations in Baltic merit a publication series of their own. The book offers lots of interesting actual data collected from corpora and gives the reader many fresh ideas on argument realization. The book should thus definitely be found on the bookshelf of any linguist interested in learning more about argument realization in general and in languages that have not gained that much attention in typological research thus far.”
