Recent Developments in Functional Approaches to Chinese

  • Yung-O Biq

Part of the Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory book series (SNLT, volume 36)


The study of Chinese grammar from a ‘functional’ point of view reflects the general functional, cognitive, and discourse tradition in current linguistics (see Chafe 1992; Hopper, 1992; Langacker, 1987, 1991; Nichols, 1984; Thompson, 1992).1 We understand the central tenet of this tradition to be an emphasis on linguistic structure as reflecting the role of language as a tool of human communication rather than as an instantiation of an abstract set of mental representations.
