Title: The Syntax of Chinese
Written By: C.T. James James Huang
Y.-H. Audrey Li
Yafei Li
Description:

The past quarter of a century has seen a surge in Chinese syntactic
research that hasproduced a sizeable literature on the analysis of almost
every construction in Mandarin Chinese. This guide to Chinese syntax
analyses the majority of constructions in Chinese that have featured in
theoretical linguistics in the past 25 years, using the authors’ own
analysis as well as existing or potential alternative treatments. A broad
variety of topics are covered, including categories, argument structure,
passives and anaphora. The discussion of each topic sums up the key
research results and provides new points of departure for further research.
This book will be invaluable both to students wanting to know more about
the grammar of Chinese, and graduate students and theoretical linguists
interested in the universal principles that underlie human languages.
