Prosodic Syntax in Chinese, Hardback Book


In THE TWO VOLUMES of Prosodic Syntax in Chinese, the author develops a new model which proposes that the interaction between syntax and prosody is bi-directional and that prosody can not only constrains syntactic structures, but also activates syntactic operations.

All of the facts investigated in Chinese provide new perspectives for linguistic theories as well as the insights into the nature of human languages.

The subtitles of the two volumes are Theory and Facts and History and Change respectively, with each focusing on different topics (though each volume has both theoretical and (historical) descriptive concerns).
