Recent Generative Studies in Chinese Syntax

Abstract

Unlike some sub-fields of Chinese linguistics, the study of Chinese grammar, in particular of Chinese syntax, is quite young. The first step was taken only about a century ago, in 1898 during the Ching Dynasty, with the publication of Jianzhong Ma’s first comprehensive Chinese grammar. Although it only has a short history, Chinese syntax is nevertheless now regarded as one of the most active and accomplished areas of Chinese linguistics.
