Abstract

Case grammar is one of the linguistic theories which were created by Charles. J. Fillmore in 1960. The theory analyses the surface structure of sentences by studying the combination of deep cases (i.e. semantic roles), focusing on the link between the valence of verb and the grammatical context it requires. Fillmore has identified more then ten semantic roles and believed that these can be found in any universal languages. This paper tries to compare case and its types in both languages, focusing on the impact of this theory on both languages.
