Abstract:

What are adverbial clauses in Chinese? Do they all have subjects as their
counterparts do in English? How do the semantic domains of adverbial clauses
interact with the distribution of subjects? How do Chinese corpora help us
explore these intriguing questions?

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the usefulness of corpus linguistics
as a methodology in grammar studies. A problem-oriented tagging approach has
been used to enable the exploration of adverbial clauses in the corpus and to
identify eleven semantically based classes of adverbial clauses. While it is a
well-known fact that Chinese adverbial clauses (CACs) are overtly marked by a
subordinating conjunction, their subjects can be left unexpressed and
recovered in the prior discourse. By analysing naturally occurring spoken and
written samples from various corpora, the author examines this intriguing
phenomenon of overt and non-overt subjects in adverbial clauses.
