A Reference Grammar of Chinese

Introduction

"A Reference Grammar of Chinese" is a book by the PolyU-PekingU Research Centre on Chinese Linguistics, under contract with Cambridge University Press. This volume aims to be a comprehensive and accessible reference grammar of Chinese, focusing on covering all important linguistic facts of the language, and the facts are presented in a way that does not presuppose knowledge of a particular linguistic theory or grammar of Chinese. One of the key features of the volume is that it is data-driven and the examples used to illustrate the linguistic facts will be derived mostly from corpus data. To underline this important feature, separate databases (including a corpus for the data and a citation database) will be maintained at the PolyU-PekingU Research Centre on Chinese Linguistics and updated periodically.

The length of the volume is 598 pages, in 17 chapters. Each chapter is authored or co-authored by 22 leading Chinese linguists. It has been published by Cambridge University Press.
