In her master thesis, the author has shown the usage of the word 'case' since it was first used up till the present days in the context of both deep and surface structures. After the introduction, Tesnière's theory was described as a model that served like an inspiration for Fillmore's model of Case Grammar. Together with Fillmore's model, Chafe, Anderson and Cook's models are also explained, especially the semantic structures of each model, its case system, verb types and covert case roles. At the end, the author has shown the applicability of each model to the Croatian sentence and has given an outline of the Croatian surface case system. After the analyses of obtained data and after building a computer program that analyzes a sentence and determines its parts as well as determines cases, it has been concluded that the surface analyses has the preference over the deep analyses for the determination of surface cases in a written text.
