Abstract:

Ever since the start of Chinese linguistic studies, the description of the
Chinese particle LE has remained elusive. The classification has evolved
from a listing of sentences and the discussion of contrastive pairs to a
more context and discourse-oriented analysis. The development in recent
years of inferential models and situation semantics has opened the way for
a renewed study of the use of the Chinese particle LE. The present book
discusses the Chinese data from a 'mental space' perspective and brings out
the role so-called Chinese 'sentence LE' plays in the construction and
maintenance of discourse.
