This article addresses the nature of the macro-event, a fundamental concept for the Talmyan two-way typology, proposing a diachronic aspect of the macro-event, an aspect that seems to be under-appreciated or even neglected.
This study used electroencephalographic evoked response potentials to investigate the processing of fictive motion and literal motion during natural language comprehension.
This study intends to investigate the conceptualization and typology of spatial stationary events from the perspective of cognitive semantics.
This book explores whether there is any difference in the mapping from the conceptual event integration to syntactic integration between extended causal chains and onset causal chains within and between Mandarin Chinese and English.
The present paper follows a bidimensional approach of aspect to conduct a corpus-based aspectual analysis of verb concatenation with imperfective markers zhe (henceforth VCIMs zhe) in Mandarin.
The Qu disposal constructions (“取+[N]+VP”) in Binaiye are types of early disposal constructions in Chinese history, but most N after Qu can be analysed as the subject (better called as topic) of VP, rather than the moved object of VP.
This paper introduces Chinese synthetic verbs, and analyses their contributions to debates in manner/result complementarity studies and cognitive typology studies.
In this paper, we further investigate whether the association between lexical diversity and language typology is manifest in a similar way in the semantic domain of separation events by focusing on Mandarin, Russian and Korean.
We adopt a corpus-based multivariate approach to analyze 2,836 observations of locative variants from a large Chinese corpus and annotated manually for various language-internal and language-external constraints.
This study reveals that, firstly, the multi-functional behavior of SHI represents a typical case of grammaticalization, with a full verb acquiring the role of conjunction and expressing abstract meanings.
