Tense and Aspect in Han Period Chinese : A Linguistic Analysis of the 'Shĭjì'

Author:
Barbara Meisterernst

Publisher:
Berlin ; Boston: De Gruyter Mouton

Publication Date:

Abstract:

Many grammatical issues of Archaic and Medieval Chinese still lack a comprehensive analysis. The book provides the first thorough investigation of the syntactic and semantic constraints of the linguistic categories tense and aspect and their relation with the lexical aspect of the verb in Han period Chinese. The author uncovers fascinating details of a language with a highly restricted verbal morphology.

2. The category tense

3. The category aspect

4. Tense and aspect in Chinese

5. The syntactic and semantic analysis of temporal adverbials and duration phrases

6. The syntactic and semantic constraints of aspecto-temporal adverbs in the Shiji
