The Contrastive Analyses of Resultative Constructions in English and Chinese —Based on Washio’s Strong and Weak Resultative Divisions


Resultative constructions exist in many languages, such as English, Chinese, Japanese and French, etc., which makes contrastive studies on different resultative constructions become a hot topic in linguistics. In the paper, based on Washio’s strong and weak division, a sharp difference is focused on two types of Chinese resultative constructions through contrasting Chinese resultative constructions with English resultative ones, although there are some similarities between two types of Chinese resultative constructions, so as to let Chinese language learners deeply understand resultative constructions in Chinese.

Keywords: Resultative constructions, strong resultatives, weak resultatives
