Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of this book , which primarily tries to integrate the studies in word-class flexibility of Classical Chinese (CC) object words into a coherent system grounded in the theoretical substrate of cognitive linguistics, namely cognitive grammar and radical construction grammar. It deals with all important aspects of the linguistic phenomenon. It has become evident that the concept of semantic map and a certain specific version of it can be instructively applied to CC; on the other hand the task of modifying and supplementing the present version based for a large part on morphology has emerged, since the situation of CC has revealed its weak points in this respect. The author proposed a topography of the conceptual space, which is intended to also incorporate adverbial modification and adverbs and to enlarge the semantic map by another dimension.

Keywords: adverbial modification; Classical Chinese (CC) object words; morphology; semantic map; topography; word-class flexibility
