ENGLISH AND MANDARIN CHINESE--DEFINITE AND INDEFINITE DETERMINERS AND MODIFYING CLAUSE STRUCTURES.
ANNEAR, SANDRA S.
THE DEFINITE AND INDEFINITE DETERMINERS AND THEIR RELATIONSHIPS TO MODIFYING CLAUSE STRUCTURES IN ENGLISH AND MANDARIN CHINESE ARE STUDIED WITHIN THE GENERAL FRAMEWORK OF TRANSFORMATIONAL GRAMMAR, AS PRESENTED BY KATZ AND POSTAL. A BRIEF SURVEY OF THE FORM-CLASS AND EARLIER TRANSFORMATIONAL APPROACHES TO THE PROBLEM IS MADE WITH THE CONCLUSION THAT THEY ARE INADEQUATE, WHEREAS THE REVISED MODEL OF KATZ AND POSTAL, IN CLARIFYING THE CONCEPTION OF THE SEMANTIC COMPONENT AND ITS ROLE IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE SYNTACTIC AND THE PHONOLOGICAL COMPONENTS IN AN INTEGRATED LINGUISTIC DESCRIPTION, CAN BEST EXPLAIN THE NATIVE SPEAKER'S USE OF THE DETERMINERS OF HIS LANGUAGE AND HIS COMPREHENSION OF THE MODIFYING CLAUSE SENTENCES. A FORMAL UNIVERSAL IN WHICH THE DETERMINERS IN THE SHARED NOMINALS OF TWO STRINGS IN A MODIFYING CLAUSE STRUCTURE NEED NOT BE IDENTICAL IS CLAIMED AND ILLUSTRATED WITH ENGLISH AND MANDARIN CHINESE.
