Analysing Secondary Predication in East Asian Languages

Author(s): Ryosuke Shibagaki

Book Description

After more than three decades of research on secondary predication, there has not been a book which examines the syntactic and semantic mechanisms of secondary predication in East Asian languages, such as Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian and Korean – until now. Shibagaki’s lucid and impartial survey should prove of great value to people interested in the study of not only secondary predication, but also the theories of syntax and semantics.
