Abstract

This talk uses English and Chinese corpora to explore translation equivalents in Chinese of words/expressions on which research on semantic prosody had been undertaken in English and seeks to answer such questions as "Are semantic prosodies peculiar to English?", "Are the presence or absence of collocations in a language determined, to a degree, by the language's dependence on word order restrictions?".
