About the Authors
  • This book aims to dispel the myth that Chinese "doesn't have words" but instead "has characters." Jerome Packard challenges the common belief that Chinese has no morphology, demonstrating how analysis of Chinese word formation enhances our understanding of word universals in natural language. His book describes the intimate relationship between words and their components and offers new insights into their evolution. Models are offered for how Chinese words are stored in the mental lexicon and processed in natural speech.

    • Demonstrates how analysis of Chinese word formation enhances understanding of linguistic properties shared by all languages
    • Shows how identities of Chinese morphemes are 'word-driven' and provides new insight on their evolution based on Chinese data
    • Offers models for how Chinese words are stored in the mental lexicon and processed in natural speech
