Abstract:

In this collection of papers on syntax, semantics and pragmatics, linguists
specialising in the study of Japanese and Chinese offer fresh ideas and
insights on the theme of grammatical categories and structure from a
comparative perspective. Against the background of theoretical developments in
recent years and individual studies of Japanese, Chinese and English grammar,
the papers in this volume are devoted to new in-depth treatments of
distinctive aspects of Chinese and Japanese grammar informed by influential
theoretical frameworks of the day, including cognitive grammar, construction
grammar, information structure, grammaticalization theory, and linguistic
typology. Topics of investigation include compounding, verb complementation,
tense and aspect, as well as a range of word order phenomena, such as passive
constructions, focus-fronting, and right dislocation.
