Sample text

Traditional descriptive grammars group hen and ting in the same class of chengdu fuci (degree words) that refer to high degrees. In reference books of Chinese grammar and dictionaries, they are always defined by each other. For example, the definition for ting in Xiandai Hanyu Cidian ‘the Dictionary of Modern Chinese’ is done by means of hen: (1) The definition of ting: (means) hen, expresses high degrees The other reference books, such as [1], have a similar treatment. There may be some reasons for doing so.

3 According to one standard theory of degree semantics, adjectives denote relations from individuals to degrees. Instead of referring to properties (8a) as assumed in traditional semantics, the lexical entry of an adjective such as piaoliang ‘beautiful’ is as shown in (8b) in this degree-based semantics (cf. [3, 4, 5, 6] among many others): (8) The lexical entry of piaoliang ‘beautiful’: (a) Traditional semantics: [[piaoliang]] = λx. beautiful (x) (b) Degree semantics: [[piaoliang]] = λdλx. beautiful (d)(x) Adjectives are about degrees along a scale.

They are exemplified in (16) and (18). (16) bitter campaign/argument/opposition/dispute (17) bitter resentment (18) bitterly fight/attack/argue 22 J. -R. Huang The examples in (16) illustrate that bitter intensifies the actions in the form of deverbal nouns, while (17) exemplifies the intensification of an emotion. As further shown in (18), when the actions take the verb form, they can be intensified by the adverb bitterly. As for the English word pain, let us read the examples in (19) to (25).
