case: case marking

In Italian, the case relation is used for any preposition introducing a noun, pronoun, adjective or adverb. Prepositions are treated as dependents of the element they attach to (or introduce) in an “extended nominal projection”.

Avevano da poco lasciato la cima
case(poco, da)
Camminata da spia
case(spia, da)
Sono d' accordo su il principio
case(principio, su)
det(principio, il)
nmod(Sono, accordo)
nmod(accordo, principio)
il ministro di l' Interno
case(Interno, di)
det(Interno, l')
nmod(ministro, Interno)

The case relation can also be used for multiword expression introducing a complement.

Prima di tutto 
case(tutto, Prima)
fixed(Prima, di)

If the head of the relation is a verb in a subordinate clause, then the correct relation is mark. If the verb is used as a noun infinitive, then case is the correct relation.

det(fare, il)
