Abstract:

Note: This is the 2nd printing of a previously announced book.

The book is a descriptive grammar of Peking Mandarin, the Chinese dialect
spoken in the capital of China. It is a reference grammar for learners of
Mandarin but is also designed for those who are interested at Peking
Mandarin and its special features. It is comprehensive because it will
cover all aspects of Peking Mandarin, i.e., its history and evolution, its
sound system, word and phrase structures, sentence structures, special
sentence patterns and discourse features. It is also selectively in depth
because issues not dealt with in most Mandarin grammar books will be given
special attention here. The most prominent issues to be discussed are the
parallelism between the internal structure of compounds, phrases and
sentences; the complex predicates, the relatively free word order and its
semantic implications; the complex sentences; the after thought structure;
the focus and topic constructions; the prevalence of phonetically null
forms and the recovery of their reference or signifié; and the dependency
between syntax and semantics, discourse and pragmatics.

Second printing 2009.
