Chinese Control Relations in Glue Semantics/Partial Compositional Discourse Representation Theory (PCDRT) terms

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentationResearch


In this talk, I will present some interesting empirical patterns observed in my ongoing work on Mandarin-Chinese control relations, and explore ways for those patterns to be modelled in Glue Semantics/PCDRT terms. The patterns involve the possibility of two equi classes and how to differentiate between them, a subtype of partial control, implicit control initiated by OBJ drop, obligatory split control, etc. The ultimate goal of my project is to develop a fine-grained analysis for a typology of detailed control relations attested within this language, with considerations of the syntax-semantics-discourse interface.
