Exciting New Papers on Language and Linguistics of China from Lingua Sinica


Free and Openly Accessible @


We are proud to announce the publication of the first articles of Lingua Sinica, the first Open Access international journal dedicated to languages and linguistics of China. The five inaugural articles cover a range of key areas of research in Chinese linguistics taking empirical approaches with inter-disciplinary perspectives. Chu-Ren Huang, in a tribute to the 60thanniversary of Y.R. Chao’s seminal paper, ‘Notes on Chinese Grammar and Logic’, introduces the ontological concept of endurant/perdurant to account for the grammatical category system of classifier in Chinese. Jingxia Lin proposes a Motion Morpheme Hierarchy for Mandarin Chinese verb compounds that predicts the order of verbal morphemes in motion constructions as found in natural Chinese corpora. Sze Wing Tang examines utterance particles in Mandarin and Cantonese, and tag statements in English, to argue for a generalized syntactic schema in which sentence final expressions are not heads. Zhiguo Xie looks at the epistemic and metaphysical readings of non-root modals in English (e.g., John might have won…) to elucidate the phenomena of backshifting in temporal perspective as found with Mandarin aspectual adverbs like reng and  hai. Finally, Henry Y. Chang analyzes the Austronesian ‘focus/voice’ system according to the Minimalist Program’s phase theory to address the extraction of internal arguments of Tsou applicatives.
