Pilch finds some parts of the inflectional morphology of Old English that display i-mutation (such as the singular second and third persons of the present indicative of strong verbs) and, above all, a noteworthy set of derivational processes in which a relation often holds between an i-unmutated base of derivation and an i-mutated derivative (1970, 88).
As the Case of a DP here clearly differs depending upon its syntactic context and the syntactic constituents that abut it, it can be seen that Case is a derivative phenomenon as far as the syntactic derivation goes and cannot be prespecified.

It is known that if there is an involutive derivation D on A, then (A, [{,,}.sub.D]) is a 3-pre-Lie algebra, where [{x, y, z}.sub.D] = D(ad(x, y)D(z)), [for all]x, y, z [member of] A, and the 3-Lie algebra A is a subadjacent 3-Lie algebra of (A, [{,,}.sup.D]), and r = [[summation].sub.i] [e.sup.*.sub.i] [cross product] D([e.sub.i])-D([e.sub.i]) [cross product] [e.sup.*.sub.i] is a skew-symmetric solution of the 3-Lie classical Yang-Baxter equation in the 3-Lie algebra [mathematical expression not reproducible], where {[e.sub.1], ..., [e.sub.m]} is a basis of A and {[e.sup.*.sub.1], ..., [e.sup.*.sub.m]} is the dual basis of [A.sup.*].
