Abstract:
			
John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
the following title in Grammaticalization:The Establishment of
Modern Chinese Grammar: The formation of the resultative
construction and its effects by Yuzhi Shi, National University
of Singapore

This book investigates historical motivations for the emergence of the
resultative construction in Chinese from the following four aspects:
(a) disyllabification, (b)adjacent context, (c) semantic integrity,
and (d) frequency of co-occurence of a pair of verb and
resultative. The author also addresses a series of grammatical changes
and innovations caused by the formation of this resultative
construction, such as the development of aspect, mood, verb
reduplication, the new predicate structure, the disposal construction,
the passive construction, the verb copying construction, and the new
topicalization construction, all of which together shape the
grammatical system of Modern Chinese! The present analysis raises and
discusses a number of theoretical issues that are meaningful to
various linguistic disciplines like pragmatics, discourse analysis,
grammaticalization, and general historical linguistics
