|Title:||Verb-Copying and Double-Object Constructions in Chinese: From the Perspectives of Cognitive Constraint and Discourse Function|
Chen, F. J.
|Publisher:||South Orange, NJ : The Association|
The aim of this paper is two-fold. First, at the theoretical level, it aims to construct a systematic description of verb-copying and double-object constructions in Chinese at various levels of linguistic analysis. This description is substantiated by the results of grammaticality judgment tasks among 300 native-speaking teachers of L2 Chinese and native speakers of Chinese. Apart from syntactic and semantic analysis, this paper also seeks to present verb-copying and double-object constructions within a unified framework with respect to the notion of cognitive constraint. Some study is made of the discourse level to explain non-obligatory use of verb copying that cannot be readily accounted for at the sentence level. Secondly, at the pedagogical level, this article incorporates the results of the multi-level linguistic analysis into the framework of pedagogical grammar. The aim is to provide teachers and textbook writers of L2 Chinese with information based on authentic language use and arranged according to the concepts of sequentiality and cumulativeness to better provide instructional input and benefit L2 learners of Chinese.
