Book Information


Title: Analysing Secondary Predication in East Asian Languages
Written By: Ryosuke Shibagaki

After more than three decades of research on secondary predication, there has not been until now a book which examines the syntactic and semantic mechanisms of secondary predication in East Asian languages, such as Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian and Korean. Shibagaki’s lucid and impartial survey should prove of much value to people interested in the study of not only secondary predication but also the theories of syntax and semantics.
