The paper was titled "Nominalization and Case Marking in Japanese." In his talk Kamiya argued that the structural case in Japanese is marked in phonologica form, while the structural case in English is marked at narrow syntax.

Thus, he claimed that there are two case marking place in syntactic derivations: one is at PF for structural case and the other is in narrow syntax for inherent case.
