Analysis of the Double Object Construction from Corpus Study

Fuwei ZANG, li GAO


The study of the double object construction (DOC for short) (S+V+N1+N2) has been one of the most heated topics in modern linguistics, and a lot of studies have been made on this language phenomenon. The previous studies are mainly centered on its structural or semantic classifications from the perspective of syntax. However, there are not enough studies on the semantic diversity of nouns cases. With the help of sentences from BNC, the paper studies features of nouns in DOC, from which we make a contrastive study of DOC in Chinese and English.
Key words: DOC; A contrastive study; Corpus


DOC; A contrastive study; Corpus
