Cantonese Particles and Affixal Quantification by Peppina Po-lun Lee
English | 22 Jun. 2012 | ISBN: 9400743866 | 265 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
Cantonese, the lingua franca of Hong Kong and its neighboring province, has an unusually rich repertoire of verbal particles. This volume significantly augments the academic literature on their semantics, focusing on three affixal quantifiers, -saai, -hoi and -maai.
The books syntax-semantics mapping geography deploys both descriptive and theoretical approaches, making it an essential resource for researchers studying the nexus of syntax and semantics, as well as Cantonese itself.
