摘要

By investigating the frequency distribution of 37 verbs in Mandarin ditransitive constructions and adopting a collostructional analysis (cf. Gries & Stefanowitsch [1]), this study aims to clarify the construction meaning of each type of ditransitive construction. The preliminary result shows that two constructions differ in terms of fine-grained aspects, such as the number and completion of transfer events. Based on the corpus findings, this study claims that the transfer meaning expressed by double-object constructions entails only one entire macro-event while the transfer event expressed by prepositional dative constructions highlights and involves more than one event, thus increasing the possibility of the prepositional dative conveying incomplete transfer meaning.
