This book looks into the syntax and semantic knowledge of sentences containing the sensitive word "Cai/Jiu" in children's Chinese learning from the perspectives of focus and scales comprehensively, reveals the internal relations between children's cognitive development in Chinese and the structural characterization of focus and scales, and. Although Chinese adverbs share enough grammatical and semantic features to form a category, they nonetheless display some contradictory variations. Unity and heterogeneity thus both characterize Chinese adverbs as one category. This chapter first offers an overview of morphosyntactic and semantic issues concerning Chinese adverbs: the kinds of head that adverbs modify, the word order of.

In linguistics, information structure, also called information packaging, describes the way in which information is formally packaged within a sentence. This generally includes only those aspects of information that “respond to the temporary state of the addressee’s mind”, and excludes other aspects of linguistic information such as references to background (encyclopedic/common.

This paper investigates the semantics of the adverb jiu in Mandarin Chinese. In the spirit of Paris [6], we claim that the nuclear meaning of jiu is to build up a relation between two units; more precisely, between the asserted value and its alternatives, between the actual value and the reference value, between the asserted value and the relevant open sentence, and/or between two successive by: 2.

Focus and Background Marking in Mandarin Chinese: System and Theory behind cai, jiu, dou and ye 1st Edition. Daniel Hole This is an investigation into the grammaticalized system of focus-background agreement in Mandarin Chinese.

Introduction. The particles cai and jiu, normally analyzed as adverbs meaning ‘only’, form a recognized class of expressions in Mandarin Chinese. The various. uses of these particles and. Mandarin focus particles systematically have heterogeneous uses.

By examining details of two focus particles jiu ‘only’ and dou ‘even’, this paper explores the hypothesis that varieties of alternatives give rise to systematic ‘ambiguities’. Specifically, by positing sum-based alternative sets and atom-based ones, it maintains unambiguous semantics of jiu as only weak and dou as even, while Cited by: 6.

Thus, pragmatics in Chinese has acquired a broader interpretation, encompassing all aspects of language use, making it more liable to be recognized as a useful subject of study.

Abstract. The main objective of this article is to provide a formal semantics of comparative correlatives of the form ‘yuè(jiù) yuè ’ in Mandarin Chinese. A new analysis is proposed which treats the comparative correlatives as one which involves a quantificational tripartite structure and which derives all the meanings of the ‘yuè(jiù) yuè ’ constructions Cited by: A semantic–pragmatic interface account of (dangling) topics in Mandarin Chinese Haihua Pan a, Jianhua Hu b, * a Department of Chinese, Translation and Linguistics, City University of Hong Kong, 83 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon, Hong Kong b Institute of Linguistics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, China Received 3 July ; received in revised form 13 November ; accepted 7 March Cited by: This is an investigation into the grammaticalized system of focus-background agreement in Mandarin Chinese.

This book is not just a valuable companion for anyone interested in core aspects of Mandarin Chinese : Daniel P. Hole. The aim of this research is to conduct a comprehensive analysis on the semantics of the adverbs cai and jiu in Mandarin Chinese, and to deal with some syntactic issues of these two adverbs to this core meaning.

It is argued that the semantics of cai is complex, as it can either have a single function, i.e. it serves as an exclusive Author: Lei (張蕾) Zhang. The study of the Chinese experiential aspect expressed by -guo is an important research topic in both Chinese theoretical linguistics and the semantics-pragmatics interface more broadly.

Previous studies propose that the semantics of -guo has the property of what is called repeatability, and/or discontinuity. In this article, I show that previous theories do not adequately explain the Author: Hongzhi Xu.

Chinese is spoken by more people than any other language in the world, and has a rich social, cultural and historical background. This book is a comprehensive guide to the linguistic structure of Chinese, providing an accessible introduction to each of the key : Chaofen Sun.

This chapter reviews how the two important notions of information structure—topic and focus—are encoded in Chinese. It first describes the properties of syntactic constructions (e.g.

shi/shi de, lian–dou/ye) and semantic particles (e.g. cai, jiu, dou, and zhi) for focus marking. It then discusses how Chinese, a topic-prominent language, conveys topical information via different Author: Yiya Chen, Peppina Po-lun Lee, Haihua Pan.

1 INTRODUCTION. The Mandarin particle dou is known for its diversity of function. As a rough classification, dou can be used as a quantifier-distributor, a free choice item (FCI-)licenser, and a scalar operator. This paper presents a uniform semantics of dou to capture the seemingly different functions it possesses.

I propose that dou is a special exhaustifier with a pre-exhaustification : Xiang, Yimei. Focus and Background Marking in Mandarin Chinese: System and Theory behind cai, jiu, dou and ye (Routledge Studies in Asian Linguistics Book 5) - Kindle edition by Hole, Daniel P.
