摘要: Huang (2006) argues that hĕn ‘very’, the Mandarin adjective intensifier, is an obligatory type-lifter that transforms simple adjectives to complex adjectives for predicate- hood, as is required by the Property Theory (Chierchia, 1984, 1985). This article studies the other cases where hĕn is not obligatory and concludes that, in addition to hĕn-insertion, affixation, and reduplication identified by Huang (2006), the negator bù and VP or IP movement can also function as type-lifters for simple adjectives. I further argue that only one type-lifter device is allowed per sentence.
