The study of Case is one the most productive areas of research in linguistic theory. Yet, views of what it is, how it works, and what phenomena it covers remain controversial. This is especially true within the Minimalist Program, which takes agreement to play a key role in the formal licensing of Case (Chomsky 2000). This has given rise to a plethora of research concerning “uninterpretable features”, and the workings of Agree. Concentrating on structural Case, I will present a synthesis of the main approaches to the theory of Case, discussing along the way some current approaches that derive aspects of Case from other grammatical domains.
