Abstract:

As with many other languages, Mandarin Chinese exhibits a rich variety of
ways in expressing the arguments of the predicator in a sentence. Unlike
other languages, such variation is typically devoid of any formal marking.
Previous attempts in explaining such phenomena usually focus on the syntax
as an explanatory tool. The main purpose of this book is to argue that many
of such argument structure phenomena are better accounted for by recourse
to enriched representations in lexical semantics. Drawing insights from
conceptual semantics, cognitive semantics, Generative Lexicon, construction
grammar and formal syntax, this book constitutes the first attempt at a
comprehensive account of lexical semantic issues in Mandarin Chinese.
