Bridging Language and Culture: A Cognitive Approach to the Study of Chinese Compounds.
Liu, Jennifer
Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association, v28 n3 p1-19 Oct 1992
Culturally specific compounds in Chinese could be more effectively studied from a cognitive approach, using the underlying idealized cognitive models defined by Lakoff. It is argued that the formation of Chinese compounds are systematically guided by idealized cognitive models and compounds are semantically compositional. (seven references) (LB)
