QUESTIONS IN CHINESE.
TSAO, WEN YEN
THIS ARTICLE, BASED ON A CONTRASTIVE ANALYSIS OF AMERICAN ENGLISH AND CHINESE, IS DESIGNED TO BE USED IN THE PREPARATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR THE PRESENTATION OF QUESTIONS IN THE TEACHING OF CHINESE. QUESTIONS CAN BE CLASSIFIED INTO THREE CATEGORIES, ACCORDING TO THEIR FUNCTIONS--(1) PURE QUESTIONS, (2) RHETORICAL QUESTIONS, AND (3) QUESTIONS CONVEYING AGREEMENT, SUPPOSITION, POLITE REQUEST, AND GREETINGS. THE FIRST CATEGORY ANTICIPATES ONE OF SEVERAL TYPES OF ANSWERS, THE LAST TWO CATEGORIES SCARCELY REQUIRE ANY VERBAL RESPONSE. QUESTION PARTICLES AND INTONATION ARE USED IN CHINESE TO CONVEY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, AS IS INTONATION IN ENGLISH. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF THE CHINESE LANGUAGE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION," VOLUME 2, NUMBER 1, FEBRUARY 1967. (NC)
