Description:
Peter Lang, 2014. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. To investigate the role of the first-language conceptual system in learning a second-language vocabulary, Xia focuses on two prominent patterns of concept categorizations depicted in the theory of prototypes and basic-level categories: the basic-level effect and the prototypicality effect. She also introduces experientialism, a fundamental theory of cognitive linguistics, into second-language research in order to test whether its premises and predictions will be confirmed in the second-language setting as they have been in the first-language setting.

This volume combines the theory of the development of a dual economy and the theory of endogenous growth to analyze three basic characteristics of China's economic development from the perspective of the transfer of agricultural labor, due to the migration of rural labor to cities, and impacts on the labor market and economic growth. It contends understanding China's high amount of investment and savings requires understanding its capital return and productivity improvement, as well as the backup technological progress and continuous mass transfer of agricultural labor, which contributes to the relationship between its labor market and the macroeconomic cycle. It also proposes policy suggestions for China to develop macro policies and developmental strategies based on the results of the research. Chapters address the three basic characteristics of China's economic development, namely its rising return on capital, its rising state of saving, and… Read more

De Gruyter Mouton, 2020. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Addressing typological characteristics in the processes of grammaticalization and lexicalization, linguists focus on whether Asian and European languages share similar grammaticalizations and lexicalization processes, whether the general processes of semantic change depend on certain typological properties of an Eastern or Western language, and whether the processes of grammaticalization and lexicalization correlate with other features of genetically unrelated and typologically different languages. Among their topics are grammaticalization in Chinese: a cross-linguistic perspective, an associated motion approach to northern Mandarin motion-cum-purpose patterns, and compounding word-formation in Ahou Gelao.
