“FP功能投射与“V+P(到/在)NPL结构的句法构造

 

Date and
time
:  Wednesday, 22 February, 15.00h – 16.00h
Venue:  Arsenaal building,
room 014
Language:  Chinese
Speaker:  Shen Yang (Beijing

Expertise现代汉语句法学、语义学
Abstract:
本文全面观察了现代汉语“V+P(到/在)NP”结构有多种形式变化和复杂语义差异,并试图找出结构中VP层动词的“位移特征”及结构中PP层介词“到、在”的“投射机制”对此的共同制约条件,即谓语动词的位移特征强弱可以诱发介词“到、在”不同终点义的投射。文章也讨论了汉语“位移终点”结构的类型归属,认为汉语这类结构介于动词型“位移终点”结构(V型)和介词型“位移终点”结构(S型)之间。同时本文还认为非“位移终点”类“V+P(在)NP”结构中动词后的“在NP”并没有FP层,只是动词前附加性PP结构的一种特殊表现。

Professor Christoph
Harbsmeier

(University of Oslo)

“Anaphora,
cataphora and exophora in Classical Chinese”

 

Date and
time
:  Wednesday, 22 February, 16.00h – 17.00h
Venue:  Arsenaal building,
room 014
Language:  English
Speaker:   Christoph Harbsmeier
(University of Oslo)
Expertise:  Chinese Linguistics
Abstract:
Co-reference relations between pronouns (including zero-pronouns) and
their antecedents have been extensively studied in general linguistics. The
case of Modern Chinese has drawn much general linguistic attention in this
connection. The case of anaphora in classical Chinese, which is radically
different from the case of Modern Chinese, is barely mentioned even in specific
discussions of the Chinese language.

The subtle connections of
zero-anaphora with the rhetorical device of the
zeugma are
obvious, and they certainly have not so far received any of the detailed
linguistic as well as stylistic attention they deserve.

The present paper will present an
exploratory survey of nominal, verbal as well as sentential anaphora based
mainly on Early Warring state sources.
