A grammar of spoken Chinese by Yuen Ren Chao( Book )

73 editions published between 1964 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of this grammar states that this is a "discussion book" and not an instruction book for learning chinese. His analysis of chinese grammar is based on current linguistic methods and assumes the reader has some knowledge of linguistics. This book constitutes a reference work for linguists and students of the chinese language. Major chapters include--(1) the sentence, (2) word and morpheme, (3) morphological types, (4) syntactical types, (5) compounds, (6) parts of speech--substantives, and (7) verbs. Phonology is briefly treated in an introductory chapter. The author believes that much of what he says here about spoken mandarin is true of all chinese, even of a good part of the literary language. Examples of usage are written in chinese characters and in the G.R. (national romanization) transcription. This grammar is published by the university of california press, 233 fulton street, berkeley, california 94720. (jd)
