This chapter explores the connection between the loss of case-marking morphology in English and some changes which took place within possessive noun phrases. It focuses on appositives to possessors, which raise some interesting questions concerning the nature of what is often referred to as ‘morphological case’ and its relationship to ‘syntactic case’.

Keywords:   case-marking morphology, English, possessive noun phrases, appositives, possessive noun
