The past quarter of a century has seen a surge in Chinese syntactic research that has produced a sizeable literature on the analysis of almost every construction in Mandarin Chinese. This guide to Chinese syntax analyzes the majority of constructions in Chinese that have featured in theoretical linguistics in the past twenty-five years, using the authors' own analyses as well as existing or potential alternative treatments. Abroad 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 sutdents wanting to know more about the grammar of Chinese, and to graduate students and theoretical linguists interested in the universal principles that underlie human languages.
