RESULTATIVE VERBS AND OTHER PROBLEMS.
HASHIMOTO, ANNE YUE
THE SO-CALLED RESULTATIVE VERBS IN MANDARIN CHINESE ARE STUDIED WITHIN THE GENERAL FRAMEWORK OF A TRANSFORMATIONAL GRAMMAR. THE RESULTATIVE VERBS ARE GENERALLY CONSIDERED AS CONSISTING OF TWO COMPONENTS--A VERBAL COMPONENT FOLLOWED BY A RESULTATIVE OR DIRECTIONAL COMPLEMENT. OTHER PROBLEMS RELATED TO COMPLEMENTS ARE ALSO TOUCHED UPON, FOR EXAMPLE, THE PRENOMINAL DEMODIFICATION, THE POSTVERBAL DECOMPLEMENT, AND OTHER KINDS OF COMPLEMENTS THAT CAN OCCUR WITH VARIOUS VERBS. THE SOLUTION PROPOSED IS TO CLASSIFY THE RESULTATIVE VERBS INTO TWO MAIN GROUPS, THE MORE PRODUCTIVE OF WHICH IS GENERATED FROM GENERALIZED TRANSFORMATIONS. A SKETCH OF THE SYNTACTIC STRUCTURE OF MANDARIN, CONSISTING OF CONSTITUENT STRUCTURE RULES, TRANSFORMATIONAL RULES, AND A SAMPLE LEXICON, IS PROVIDED AS THE BASIS OF DISCUSSION. (IT)
