Subject: A Question about Word Order of NP
E-mail this message to a friend

Everyone:
I have a question about the relationship between the conventional word
order of NP and its variants:

For example, the NP of Chinese has its conventional word order :
G(enitive)-D(emonstrative)-A(djective)-H(ead)

But, it also has its pragmatical variant:
A-D-H

I am interested in the relationship between the conventional order and its
variants.

Now, I need to know which language can have such variant like Chinese, and
what kind of variants your language owns.

What about Italian, Spanish and French?
And can you tell me information of more languages about this question?

My email address is zhangzhenya2005yahoo.com.cn

Thank you!
