Chapter Summary

This section presents the list of reference books and articles that occur in the book titled Word-Class Flexibility in Classical Chinese. The author hope is to interpret this, in the view of classical European grammar, apparently puzzling usage of Classical Chinese (CC) words in a broader context than my predecessors have by combining strategies of all major disciplines related to HY (huóyòng) into a kind of interdisciplinary interpretative net. In this endeavor the author tries to proceed with at least an elementary comparative perspective, which primarily means exploiting literature on English noun-verb conversion, which is a close counterpart to HY in CC.

Keywords:Classical Chinese (CC); European grammar; huóyòng (HY)
