[The syntax of verb-object phrases in Chinese constraints and reanalysis] These de Doctorat de l'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. Paris, 1986. 315 p. ~estruaturation La syntaxe des PAUL (Waltraud) syntag~s ve~be-objet en ahinois : aont~intes et The present thesis examines the syntactic behaviour of transitive verb-object phrases (henceforth VOP) in modern spoken Chinese (putonghua). These VOPs which consist of a verb and an object are called transitive because they allow for another object. Thus in (1), b~ng~kn 'patient' is the "outer" object of the VOP kai dao 'open knife' = 'to operate on', whereas aao 'knife' is the "inner" object of the VOP kai diio : (1) Y~sheng doctor- for/to- patient- open- knife "The doctor operates on the patient". gei b~ng~~n kai dao In contrast to verb-object aompounds which, like simple verbs, are followed by their objects (cf. (2)), the position after the VOP is unacceptable for the outer object (cf. (3)). The ungrammaticality of the structure 'Subject verb inner object outer object' thus serves as a criterion to distinguish between verb-object p~ases like kai aao and verb-object aompounds like ahu-ban 'produce- printing plate' = 'to publish' : C.L.A.O.
