One of the major concerns of current linguistic theory is to determine the set of general principles to which the syntactic structure of all natural languages conforms, and in this connection it is important to examine a variety of language families and types. Though since the 1980s, current linguistic theories such as the government-binding theory have been applied to Chinese, this volume takes up issues to which previous investigations did not pay much attention, or gave less comprehensive treatment. Its analysis of manyaspects of Chinese syntax based on careful examination of data should be of interest and value to Chinese linguists, whether G-B oriented or otherwise.
