This paper proposes that there are two types of indirect object markers in the Chinese language: The go-type and the give-type. The chronological development of these two types of indirect object markers will be discussed. Moreover, with reference to the Cantonese dialects, this paper will examine the factors contributing to the replacement of the go-type marker by the give-type marker. Finally, this typology of the indirect object markers is discussed from an areal linguistic perspective.

Evidence has been accumulating that nouns and verbs are quite differently represented in the brain. Core information about verbs tends to be in the frontal lobe, while that for nouns tends to be in posterior cortical locations. Much of the evidence comes from aphasic patients, whose control of verbs is impaired in cases of frontal lobe lesions, while patients with posterior lesions have impaired access to nouns. According to this principle, a Chinese compound like fei-ji ‘airplane’, a frequently occurring noun form, would be expected to have its representation in posterior locations and should not be affected in cases of damage to the frontal lobe. Yet a recent study of compounds in Chinese aphasics reveals that those with frontal lobe damage have impaired access to the verb component (fei) of such compounds. This paper provides an explanation of the phenomenon using a neurologically plausible network model of the linguistic information in the brain.

This paper explores the dual function of liah8 力 as verb and preposition in Li Jing Ji 荔鏡記, a Romance of the Litchi Mirror, featuring Southern Min in the sixteenth century. 搦 as the etymologically viable character meaning ‘hold’ in lieu of the demotic character 力 dates back as early as the third century AD. Given unidirectionality in grammatical change from lexeme to function word, the frozen-in-time co-existence of liah8 力as verb (23 percent), verb/preposition (19 percent) and preposition (58 percent) points to grammaticalization that had been well underway but had not been consummated by the middle of sixteenth century. In contrast, chiong1 將 had shed its verbal function, proceeded to the intermediate stage, and taken on the role of preposition. Southern Min is rich in chronological strata either phonologically and syntactically. Liah8 力 and chiong1 將 belong in different chronological strata and follow separate routes of grammaticalization. Nevertheless, they converged in the same synchronic state, and their paths partially crossed resulting in a co-existential and even competitive situation.

This article discusses the etymon of four grammatical particles, including temporal suffix shǒu 手, the deictic particle ěr 爾, the pronoun plural markers nóng 儂 and the interrogative particle tǐ 底 in northern Wu and Min dialects as revealed by the historical documents. These four particles were used in the ancient Jiangdong 江東 dialect in Six Dynasties at one time. Among them, the front two came from the Koine earlier, and the other two were the southern elements at an initial stage. The author tries to show that the materials of northern Wu, especially Sunan Wu should play an indispensable role for the comparison between Wu and Min dialects. Besides, it is necessary for us to attach an importance to the study of the historical evolution of grammatical particles in Wu and Min.

This paper discusses the universal complement and adjunct distinction refuted in Tang (1990) and Lin (1994) who argue that there seems to be no point in setting up a special category of complements in Chinese because an adjunct and optionally a determiner -numeral- classifier phrase can occur between a complement and the head noun. A closer examination of the distributional differences of the appositive clause and the relative clause in Chinese, however, reveals that the differences follow what is usually assumed to exist between complement and adjunct. To reconcile these two sets of distributional facts, we re-examine the distribution of all prenominal modifiers, including specifiers, complements and adjuncts and sum up with three principles. We also re-examine the structure of NPs with a two-place nominal as head and propose a new analysis which takes the dui-NP phrase and the preceding NP as forming a small clause sharing a number of features with the appositive clause. On the basis of this similarity we propose to analyze the [NP PP] small clause as a complement. The two observations together with the usual assumption that the complement is a daughter while the adjunct is a sister of a N’ can explain a wide range of distributional facts of Chinese premodifiers. Finally, we re-examine the distributional facts of the dui-NP phrase and the preceding NP, when they occur in a sentence with a dummy verb such as you ‘EXIST, HAVE’ and jinxing ‘PROCEED’. By assuming these dummy verbs as raising predicates as Tsao (1990, 1996) has, and the rule “Adnominal Dative Promotion”, we are able to account for the distributional facts we have observed.
本論文先討論了在X標杠理論中補語與附加語之分別; 根據此項區別，補語恒比附加語接近中心語名詞。就結構樹而言，補語是X零次杠的姊妹節，而附加語是X一次杠的姊妹節。可是，湯志真 (1990) 和林若望 (1994)在檢視了所謂補語與附加語在漢語各句中的分佈後，都認為漢語不必做此區分，因為在一般都認為是補語的片語與中心語名詞間尚可插入附加語，以及定-數-類片語。 但在檢視了名詞的同位子句及關係子句之後，我們發現它們的分佈完全遵照補語與附加語的區分。這一點促使我們重新全面檢視了補語與附加語的分佈情形，從而找出了他們在名片語內成分分佈的三大原則。 在檢視的過程中我們也發現了被視為是構成反例的「對」字片語，其實可以和它的主語名片語共組一個小句(small clause)，而該小句為中心語的補語。我們舉出相當多的例證來支持我們的分析。如果這樣的分析成立的話，那麼前述的三條分佈原則加上出現在基底的補語附加語區分，就可以解釋漢語名片語內部成分在表層的分佈現象。

This study conducts a psycholinguistic experiment using the concept-formation paradigm to probe perception of tones across different syllable types. Native-speaking subjects were trained to perceive tonal identities in Taipei Taiwanese and then tested with novel tokens comprising checked versus non-checked pairs to see if comparable tonal values across distinct syllable types are categorized as ‘having the same tone’. The results of our experiment indicate that ‘tonal identity’, like other concepts formed by human categorization, has its fuzzy edges. Extracting and establishing tonal identity becomes increasingly difficult as syllable structures become more different.

Two groups of Chinese sentences involve LF wh-movement in the same fashion but contrast sharply in grammaticality. We demonstrate in this article that this systematic contrast constitutes a significant puzzle for the well-known claim that LF movement of adjuncts is constrained by the applicable locality conditions whereas that of arguments need not obey those conditions in the wh-in-situ languages like Chinese. We argue that this contrast can be accounted for naturally by appealing to a general condition on the positioning of the Chinese focus marker shi, which has nothing to do with the locality conditions on movement in any form. Furthermore, a reasonable solution of the problem argues for a Pied-Piping approach to deal with the language facts that have been under consideration by many authors but have not received a satisfactory treatment. That is, what is being LF-extracted in those superficially island-violating sentences in fact is the whole island that contains the questioned or focused element rather than the questioned or focused element alone. The LF movement of arguments is subject to the locality conditions very much in the very same fashion as that of adjuncts in the Chinese language.
本文首先展示了兩組句子，這兩組句子本應同樣涉及邏輯式中的（暗）移位，但是一組句子非常自然貼切，另一組卻完全不能接受，兩組句子對比鮮明。我們認為，漢語中有關疑問代詞暗移位的這一系統對立對黃正德先生重要論文(Huang, 1982a/b) 發表後二十多年來語法學界有關漢語類語言中附加詞語（Adjuncts）暗移位受區位條件限制(locality conditions)而論元詞語（Arguments）暗移位不受這種限制的論斷構成了一個很大的問題。本文要說明的是，上述兩組句子之間的系統對立跟任何形式的區位條件都沒有關係，而是因為漢語焦點標記“是”在位置安排上的一般限制條件發揮作用所造成的結果。更為重要的是，本文對上述問題的處理方案還對“邏輯式中的跟隨移位”理論提供了有力的支持。我們認為，邏輯式中被暗中移位的其實不是那些被嵌入孤島的疑問代詞本身，而是包含這些疑問代詞的那些個孤島。漢語類語言中附加詞語暗移位所受的區位條件限制跟論元詞語暗移位所受的區位條件限制完全一樣。

This paper aims to conduct four phonological experiments, onset similarity experiment, sound contraction experiment, sound similarity experiment, and sound expansion experiment, to test the asymmetrical behavior among dentals, retroflexes, or velars with respect to palatals in Mandarin. The analyses show that native speakers of Mandarin have preferences to replace palatals with dentals on line during phonological experiments, and that dentals take part in phonological patterns which are different from those of other places of articulation.
本文以四項實驗：聲母近似度判斷實驗、音節縮減近似度判斷實驗、語音近似度判斷實驗、與音節擴充近似度判斷實驗，來探討臺灣區漢語使用者對於漢語舌面音[t, t, ]與舌尖音[ts, ts, s]、翹舌音[t, t, ]或舌根音[k, k, x]在心理層面偏好的關係。實驗之結果數值均顯 表現出當舌面音不存在時，受試者較偏好以舌尖音取代舌面音。由日常口語的語料頻率來看，舌根音最多，翹舌音次之，而舌尖音最少。舌尖音的偏好選擇因此證實與使用者的使用頻率無關；舌尖音取代舌面音的偏好在使用者的心理底層結構具有一定機制。

Kong’s Laryngeal Dynamics and Physiological Models offers an admirable–indeed, a heroic— advance in our critical seeing, measuring, and analysis of glottalbehavior. Furthermore, to this reviewer’s knowledge, Kong makes the only credibleattempt to apply his observational methods and analytic techniques to theclarification of the phonemic (as opposed to the suprasegmental) value of phonatorybehavior in both “classically” tonal languages (such as Mandarin or Cantonese) andin languages that use phonatory type (for instance, creaky voice) as a phonemicfeature, as do several of the minority languages of China (such as Miao) that Prof.Kong has studied extensively. It is worthy of special note and recognition thatKong, in investigating glottal function, has chosen not to go the well-traveled routeof most modern researchers, relying solely on a few acoustic characteristics andglottographic (in sense of the word used by Titze and Talkins) waveforms, such asthe inverse filtered flow signal or the electroglottogram, as the basis for physiologicinference about glottal behavior. He appreciates –and uses—some of these “easier”and less direct methods, but he insists, at considerable cost in investigatorycomplexity and difficulty, on actually watching what is going on.

The Conceptual Metaphor Theory (Lakoff and Johnson, 1980; Lakoff, 1993) proposes a scenario-approach to conceptual metaphors, whereby prior knowledge of the mapped domains (target domains and source domains) is assumed to already exist before conceptual metaphors are created. However, this prior knowledge is not constrained. In this work, we instead propose that collocations can be integrated into lexical and computational methods to determine and constrain source domains. Our study uses a large sampling of corpora data and four computational steps to determine source domains. The results show that source domains can be identified through computational and criteria-based methodologies. This study will provide evidence to integrate linguistic collocations in order to test the Conceptual Metaphor Theory. Our results support the use of data-driven principles to predict the cognitively motivated conceptual relation between source and target domains.

The verb piong3 (放) ‘to put’ in Hakka is endowed with an abundance of related meanings. In line with the theory of constructions and the idea of frame semantics, this study submits the following claims. First, the basic meaning of piong3 designates a common pattern of human experience: An animate entity exerts manual force upon a physical object and causes the object to move. It is argued that the verbal polysemy latent in piong3 can allow for its semantic compatibility with various syntactic structures: phrasal structure (i.e., [VN]/[VA] constructions, where N stands for a noun phrase, including an object noun, location or a temporal expression and where A refers to a cover term for complements such as adjectives and adverbs), and sentential structure (i.e., TUNG constructions, locative inversion, deprofiled object constructions etc). Second, the extended meanings of piong3 are linked to its typical use through the use of various metaphors and metonymies such as CONTAINER, CHANGE OF STATE AS CHANGE OF LOCATION metaphors and through ACTION FOR RESULT metonymy. Finally, the findings reveal that certain frequently-used [VN]/[VA] constructions are examples of the process of lexicalization aligned to certain degree of grammaticalization. This study also supports the suggestion that the knowledge of language greatly hinges upon personal experience and daily use and as such is context-dependent and social-interactional.
本文以Fillmore提出的「框架语义」以及Goldberg等学者提出的「构式语法」观点为基础，分析客语「放」字构式呈现的多义现象。客语「放」字涉及「使动事件」：空间位移与 状态变化。本文着重分析「使动结构」与客语「放」字在动词词组(包括动词名词组、动词形容词组)及句子等构式中语意－句法的互动。同时藉助隐喻与转喻的强化，说明客语「 放」字延伸语意之间的关联性，并进一步阐述客语「放」字在动词名词组结构中词汇化为复合词的现象。因此，本论文经由分析词汇化类型与探讨事件架构中参与角色的展现与否 ，说明客语「放」字语意与句法间的相互关系。

This paper aims to present a proposal for a relevance-theoretic description of the use of the particle ba in Mandarin Chinese. The result of the analyses of the data shows that ba is a pragmatic marker with a similar function in declaratives, interrogatives and imperatives, i.e. to indicate hearer-oriented weak commitment towards either the proposition expressed (declaratives, interrogatives) or the speech act expressed (imperatives). The results also indicate that ba can be compared to tags such as English yeah, right? and innit? and that it is often used more generally to engage the hearer in the conversation and expressing politeness with no real intention of allowing for a response or confirmation from him/her.
本文以关联理论为依据试图对汉语句末助词”吧”的用法进行全面的解释与分析。 结果表明，”吧” 在陈述句、疑问句与祈使句都具有类似的用法，即表示说话者面向听话者对 自己表达的命题(陈述句、疑问句) 或言语行为(祈使句)之承诺。结果还表明”吧”有时同英文的像 yeah 、right 、innit 类似的所谓”tags” 的词语一样 起着鼓励听话者更积 极/投入地参加会话的作用。 在这种语境里”吧”的出现表示礼貌而不一定意味着说话者要听话者回应或确认命题的真实价值。

Children have been shown to acquire path satellite constructions early in development across a number of different languages. One possible explanation is that children start to form concepts of path of motion before they even begin to speak. It is also possible that path satellites are highly frequent in parents’ language to children. To explore the role of frequency, we examined how path, manner, and resultative satellite constructions were used by Chinese-English bilingual children and adults. By looking at bilingual children, we can dissociate how the children’s linguistic knowledge and age factor in their acquisition. Four Chinese-English bilingual children between the ages of 1;9 and 3;3 were videotaped in free-play sessions in both English and Chinese. It was found that the adults used motion + path constructions more often than any other kind of verb complexes and the children encoded motion + path earlier, too. In Chinese, the children heard more resultatives than manner constructions whereas the reverse was true in English. The children’s production of these constructions followed the frequency in the input. The adults’ use of lexicalization patterns was not uniform with the children’s age and/or linguistic level. We conclude that researchers must look at how adults use lexicalization patterns with their children in order to understand children’s acquisition of these patterns.

The article is intended to explore the correlation between respiratory behaviors and speech prosody and that between respiratory behaviors and discourse implications. To this end，an experiment was designed to record the respiratory curves of 12 subjects during the assigned read-aloud speech with the help of respiratory transducers. The subsequent quantitative analysis and interpretation of the experiment recordings reveal the difference between respiratory movements in speech and in natural state. Unlike natural respiration, every respiratory parameter in speech is closely related to the prosodic hierarchy. A notable and telling example is the respiratory slope. When it varies, the breath curves can be divided into 3 types-normal, steep and flat respectively; each of them corresponds to either different levels in a prosodic hierarchy or distinct semantic features. With this and other examples, a conclusion can be drawn that the respiratory movements in speech are consistent with discourse structure, discourse implication and expression of emotions, reflecting how each speaker understands and chunks the prosodic units at different levels.
本文使用呼吸传感器对12位被试朗读时的呼吸曲线进行了量化分析和解读，探讨了呼吸在话语节律中的表现及其与韵律、语义的关系。结果表明，话语呼吸节律与自然呼吸节律不 同，呼气和吸气曲线的各参数均与韵律单位等级有着密切的关系。根据呼吸斜率的不同，话语呼吸曲线均可分为陡、缓、平三种类型，它们或对应为不同的韵律等级，或负载着不 同的语义特征，说明话语呼吸的升降变化是人们在说话时话语结构、话语意义以及情感表达的伴随现象，反映了说话人对不同级别韵律单位的理解和处理过程。

The present study is a palatographic and linguographic investigation of the articulatory characteristics of the coronal obstruents [t ts s] in Cantonese. The main findings are as follows. (i) Data on linguopalatal contact show Cantonese stop [t] is an apico-laminal denti-postalveolar articulation, with the tip and blade of the tongue making simultaneous contact on the upper central incisors, alveolar ridge, and postalveolar region. The broad linguopalatal constriction in the sagittal plane may be considered as an articulatory gesture characteristic of Cantonese stop [t]. (ii) Both Cantonese fricative [s] and affricate [ts] are articulated with the blade of the tongue making contact on the alveolar ridge. The affricate [ts] has a close affinity in articulation with the fricative [s] rather than the stop [t]. (iii) Data on the width of lateral contact on each side of the palatal region during [t ts s] show that the coronal obstruents are palatalized before [i] and [y], and a larger degree of palatalization before [i] than [y] is observed. (iv) The post-consonantal high front vowels [i y] affect the width of lateral contact on each side of the palatal region during [t ts s], but not the length of central constriction on the palate in the sagittal plane. (v) There is no gender variation in degree of palatalization and length of central constriction on the palate in the sagittal plane during [t ts s]. And, (vi) the articulatory data obtained in the present study in general do not confirm the quality descriptions of the articulatory characteristics of the coronal obstruents in the past studies of Cantonese, in particular, the claims with respect to change of articulatory target region in different vowel environments.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” As a conference organizer, it is my great honor to report a great academic event, 2010 International Conference on Applied Linguistics & Language Teaching (ALLT), April 15-17, 2010, held at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Comparing with 2009 ALLT, the 2010 conference themes mainly focus on “project-based teaching and learning,” along with other topics as shown below.
