X ting gao ‘X is very tall’ * X shi gao de ‘X is tall’) What about the syntax of hen/ting AP? Adopting the Degree Phrase Hypothesis (cf. [3], [8]), we argue that both hen AP and ting AP are Degree Phrases (DegPs), in which both hen and ting are heads. The structures and semantic derivations for hen gao and ting gao are provided as (15a) and (15b) respectively for illustration: (15) a. tall(d)(x) (a’) A Contrastive Analysis of hen and ting in Chinese 39 b. ting gao DegP: λxC’d[tall(d)(x)∧C’C∧d≥StandardC’(tall)] (b’) Deg’<>> AP> Deg ting A gao λGλx.

Salient set D’ of D: D’⊆ D: D’={a, b, c, d, e, f, g} In the salient set D’, Professor g published the most papers in the year 2014. This satisfies the semantic requirement of ting (cf. (10b)). This domain-restriction semantics in terms of saliency renders (12b) acceptable in the scenario described in (11). Furthermore, the present account correctly predicts that X hen AP entails X is AP, but X ting AP may not entail X is AP: (14) a.

That hen and ting have different semantic entailments (resulted from their difference in lexical semantics) also explains the contrast in (6): (6) a. hen shi renao ‘very be boisterous’, hen shi congming ‘very be intelligent’, hen shi yihan ‘very be regretful’ b. *ting shi renao ‘very be boisterous’, *ting shi congming ‘very be intelligent’, *ting shi yihan ‘very be regretful’ Shi in (6) is used assertively/emphatically, that is, it adds some sense of assertiveness. This sense gets enhanced in the presence of hen, which involves a relatively fixed, norm related standard.
