Qs: Closed Classes in Mandarin

Editor for this issue: Ann Sawyer <sawyerlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Closed Classes in Mandarin

I have a giant word frequency list for Mandarin Chinese that I'd like to pare
down into most frequent words + all members of closed classes. Does
anyone have any lists of all conjunctions, prepositions, determiners,
pronouns, localizers or the various particles? My project is to efficiently
determine whether or not each class is wholly represented in the large word
