Asymmetry in Temporal and Sequential Clauses in Chinese
Chan, Stephen W.
Journal of Chinese Linguistics, 2, 3, 340-353, Sep 74
Examines several subtypes of the verbal sequency NP-VP1-VP2 in Chinese, especially those involving descriptions of human action, directed motion, and instrumental functions, and finds that these could be subsumed under the heading of "purposive clauses." The VP1 states an action whose goal is fulfilled by the action performed in VP2. (Author/RM)
