Description The talk addresses the issue of syncretism in case paradigms that pertain to the dative case. Of particular importance will be the fact that the dative case sometimes shows systematic syncretism with the accusative (Icelandic, Hardarson 2016) and sometimes not (Russian, McCreight and Chvany 1991). Recently, it has been proposed by Starke (2017) that this is because there are in fact two distinct datives, and that the Icelandic dative is different from the Russian dative. I provide additional evidence for Starke's proposal and investigate its consequences for the syntax and morphology of datives in various varieties of Saami.
