Title: On the Formal Way to Chinese Languages
Edited By: Sze-Wing Tang
Chen-Sheng Luther Liu
Description:

This collection presents readers with the main thrust of current research
on Chinese languages from the perspective of formal linguistics. Written by
an international assembly of researchers in the Weld, the papers offer an
in-depth study of important theoretical issues and particular questions in
contemporary Chinese linguistics, and serve as a useful reference for
various areas of Chinese grammar. The eleven chapters include discussions
of reflexivity, modifiers and nominal structures, tense, verbal
constructions and sentence structures, onset change, suffixation, and first
language acquisition. This volume provides for all readers a valuable
resource of and the greatest access to the Weld of formal Chinese
linguistics today. [To order this book, contact The University of Chicago
