Abstract:

Chinese is spoken by more people than any other language in the world, and
has a rich social, cultural and historical background. This is a
comprehensive guide to the linguistic structure of Chinese, providing an
accessible introduction to each of the key areas. It describes the
fundamentals of its writing system, its pronunciation and tonal sound
system, its morphology (how words are structured), and its syntax (how
sentences are formed) - as well as its historical development, and the
diverse ways in which it interacts with other languages. Setting the
discussion of all aspects of Chinese firmly within the context of the
language in use, Chinese: A Linguistic Introduction will be of great
benefit to learners wishing to extend their knowledge and competence in the
language, and their teachers. It will also be a useful starting point for
students of linguistics beginning work on the structure of this major world
language.
