    Transitivity basically presents how the world is perceived in three dimensions: the material world, the world of consciousness, and the world of relations. It categorizes potential number and the semantic roles assigned to the participants according to the nature of the processes. Table 1. Processes: Categories and Descriptions.

A study of sentence-internal coherence mechanisms: topic NP in Korean - from discourse to syntax. Current findings support transitivity is an integral part of the mental representation of Chinese verbs.

Abstract By taking advantage of the semantic-syntactic characteristics of Chinese verbs, the current study examined the brain activity of automatic activation of syntactic features at the single word level.

Abstract. This paper aims at providing a semantic account of the mechanism informing the use of negative modals in standard Chinese. Based on the notion of modal suppletion and negation placement strategies (de Haan ), it will be shown that.

This article presents an overview of the basic issues concerning the relationship between case, grammatical relations, and semantic roles such as agent and patient. In most approaches, semantic roles are directly linked to abstract grammatical relations for the core arguments of the clause.

Cases are considered to be a surface expression of grammatical relations. Semantic relations are discussed in detail by Murphy (). For more information about prototype theory and especially construction grammar, Croft & Cruse () is a must-read.

Semantics, also called semiotics, semology, or semasiology, the philosophical and scientific study of meaning in natural and artificial term is one of a group of English words formed from the various derivatives of the Greek verb sēmainō (“to mean” or “to signify”).

The noun semantics and the adjective semantic are derived from sēmantikos (“significant”); semiotics. The Semantics of Syntax: The Grounding of Transitive and Intransitive Constructions Wessel O.

van Dam and Rutvik H. Desai Abstract Embodied theories of language maintain that brain areas as- sociated with perception and action are also involved in the. In conclusion, the current study, together with previous studies (Wang et al.,Yu and Zhang,Zhang et al., ), provide evidence for the independence of semantic processing in Chinese sentence processing: semantic integration proceeds when syntactic category or transitivity processing fails.

This scenario may be related to the. In addition, there are books that deal with facets of transitivity (such as case or grammatical relations) in depth. Blake is devoted to relational grammar, one of the relevant theories of grammar for grammatical relations. Case is a central feature of transitivity.

Transitivity is a semantic system specifying different types of processes which form semantic separatecate- gories on the basis of which experienceis reflected in language. Transitivity is regarded as a system construing the world of experience into limited number of processes, ranging from material, mental, relational, behavioral.

All in all three approaches to transitivity can be differentiated: a syntactic-semantic (represent mainly by Hopper and Thompson ), a semantic (e.g. the Role and Reference Grammar of Van Valin. Semantic arguments are typically expressed as syntactic arguments, but the correspondence between the two is not perfect, as (8b) shows.

We will use the term transitivity to refer to the number of syntactic arguments that a verb combines with, and we can then divide verbs into three subcategories as in (9). The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between information and direct object regardless of semantic roles or transitivity.

However, in an ergative pattern, the subject of an intransitive verb and the direct object of a transitive verb share which were extracted from a Chinese book titled 心情故事 [Mood Stories.

The verbs that appear with generic objects are generally the Chinese equivalents of optionally transitive verbs in English. Some examples are found in Table 1.

Compared with the critical words in CON, those in SEM and SEM+SYN elicited an NP biphasic.
