- This title focuses on the cross-linguistic comparison of Chinese with other languages. It contains 16 original chapters comparing specific major phenomena in Chinese syntax with corresponding ones in at least one other language, in many cases with other languages of Asia as well as Europe, North America, and Africa. This volume presents fresh perspectives on major syntactic issues in Chinese and what the study of Chinese can offer to linguists working on other, genetically unrelated languages.
