The paper discusses issues in the grammar of Case marking in the DP by focusing on two interrelated puzzles in the syntax of Bulgarian nominalizations. The first puzzle concerns the ban on strong pronouns to act as DP-internal subjects. We argue that this is due to a morphological Case conflict, and we also discuss some historical considerations bearing on the loss of the genitive in Bulgarian. The second puzzle we discuss concerns DPs headed by an object nominal which show no traces of a Case conflict. The paper offers some considerations bearing on the genitive-dative Case syncretism in the history of Bulgarian.
