Details
There is a close relationship between the bisyllablization of Chinese and the foot transformation in the history of Chinese language, but how to realize the foot transformation in the history of Chinese language is an issue needing further discussion. Starting from the syllabic structures in classic Chinese, this book explores the inevitability of this transformation based on the theory of prosodic grammar, i.e., the natural simplification of the syllabic structures in classic Chinese has led to the transformation of foot in the history of Chinese, and the transformation of foot has directly brought about the bisyllablization of Chinese. On this basis, the book further shows the bisyllablization, including the lexical operation, syntactic operation and lexicalization, and discusses the influence of bisyllablizationon on Chinese.
