有關 中正95 語概(2) 2.2. Polysyllabic monomorphemic word....e.g. pu-tao " 葡萄 ",

* Bisyllabic but monomorphemic words, such as hudie ' 蝴蝶 '...找到答案囉~Nancy說對囉 ^^ ~

葡萄, 蝴蝶都可以說是 polysyllabic monomorphemic word..但說是 Bisyllabic monomorphemic word 應該是更正確囉....: )

Chinese morphology has very limited inflectional and derivational processes (see Li & Thompson 1983, Chapter 3). However, compounding is comparatively productive in this language. According to research done by the Chinese Knowledge Information Processing Group, there were 42,686 words (by type) and 5,666 characters appearing in a large corpus. Except for very few bisyllabic monomorphemic words like pu-tao ‘grape’), in which the single character does not have meaning by itself, all other characters are meaningful units (therefore they are morphemes or words) and are used repeatedly to form polymorphemic (especially bimorphemic) compounds.

  • ^^由上面的bisyllabic monomorphemic words如葡萄,琵琶,我們應該可以推論出 Monosyllabic monomorphemic word,可能有「書」,ㄕㄨ,ㄕ是由像一個s加上尾巴的IPA,加上一個母音[u],所以我覺得應該是屬於單一音節的答案。但是「詩」就只有ㄕ一個子音。謝謝提供資料嚕!大家再討論看看~
