research on Chinese languages from the perspective of formal
linguistics. Written by an international assembly of researchers in
the Weld, the papers offer an in-depth study of important theoretical
issues and particular questions in contemporary Chinese linguistics,
and serve as a useful reference for various areas of Chinese grammar.
The eleven chapters include discussions of reflexivity, modifiers and
nominal structures, tense, verbal constructions and sentence
structures, onset change, suffixation, and first language
acquisition. This volume provides for all readers a valuable resource
of and the greatest access to the Weld of formal Chinese linguistics
