Radicals and Parts of Speech in Chinese, with Pedagogical Applications
Ya-Hsin (Sally) Wen
Parts of Speech in Chinese
The focus of this thesis is on Chinese reading strategy for the beginner level. The analysis puts emphasis on how to decode the context when beginner level learner faces new Chinese characters. The reading strategy shall build on the “semantic clues” of the radicals and on the basic Chinese syntactic structure – “Subject + Verb + Object”. The notion is to find out the relation of Radicals and the Parts of Speech in Chinese; and to show application of the findings on decoding new Chinese characters in beginner level reading process. Research starts with the “semantic clues” of the radicals. Former researchers have found out connections between the “semantic clues” of radicals and those Chinese characters generated from them. The quality of the Chinese characters influences the Chinese character acquisition of beginner level learners. Thus, the affective teaching of radicals has impact on Chinese character acquisition and Chinese decoding ability. This thesis proposes: radicals shall appear certain “parts of speech inclination” which derives from the semantic meaning of the radicals. The judgement of the “parts of speech” bases on the meaning of the Chinese characters. After categralization, more than half of the radicals within the research range appear certain “parts of speech inclination”. The pedagogical application on teaching strategies follows after the conclusion.
