Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies

Part II

This course is designed to acquaint students with the nature and workings of the Chinese Language and to help them establish a linguistic (syntactic, semantic, morphological) framework for the description and analysis of Chinese. It will enable students to understand and explain typological and syntactic differences between Chinese and English on the basis of linguistic theories, and to introduce them to some contentious issues in the study of the Chinese language.
