About this title:

Synopsis:

The Handbook of Chinese Linguistics presents critical overviews of a wide range of major topics in Chinese linguistics, and is the first book to introduce Chinese linguistics from the perspective of modern theoretical and formal linguistics.

  • Offers readers a balanced and accessible introduction to some of the most important results of research into Chinese linguistics carried out by theoretical linguists during the last thirty years
  • Topics covered include, among others, syntax, morphology, phonetics, phonology, language acquisition, historical linguistics, and psycholinguistics, with each chapter outlining and assessing the major achievements and controversies of research undertaken in that subject
  • Contributors present their own research in their field of expertise, along with competitor theories and analyses
  • Edited by a team of leading figures in the field, all with vast research experience in this area

From the Back Cover: The Handbook of Chinese Linguistics is the first comprehensive introduction to Chinese linguistics from the perspective of modern theoretical and formal linguistics. Containing twenty-five chapters, the book offers a balanced, accessible and thoughtfully organized introduction to some of the most important results of research into Chinese linguistics carried out by theoretical linguists during the last thirty years. Presenting critical overviews of a wide range of major topics, it is the first to meet the great demand for an overview volume on core areas of Chinese linguistics.

Authoritative contributions describe and assess the major achievements and controversies of research undertaken in each area, and provide bibliographies for further reading. The contributors refer both to their own work in relevant fields, and objectively present a range of competitor theories and analyses, resulting in a volume that is fully comprehensive in its coverage of theoretical research into Chinese linguistics in recent years.

This unique Handbook is suitable both as a primary reader for structured, taught courses on Chinese linguistics at university level, and for individual study by graduates and other professional linguists.
