Editorial Reviews


"The book is the first that combines diachronic with synchronic approaches in the study of Sinitic languages. ... There have been no lack of diachronic studies of Chinese grammar, for instance, but there has been no volume...that houses so many studies in one place. ...a must for students of Sinitic languages."--Linguist List

About the Author

Hilary Chappell is a senior lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at La Trobe University, Melbourne. During the last six years, she has embarked upon the first large scale typological study of grammatical diversity in Sinitic (Chinese) languages. She has carried out field work and research in China (2 years) and Taiwan (1 year), initially studying at Beijing University.
Her publications include a jointly edited volume with William McGregor entitled 'The Grammar of Inalienability' (Mouton de Gruyter, 1995) which has become a standard reference in typology on the topic of grammatical possession. She has also published over 30 book chapters and articles on topics in the grammar of Chinese languages.
