Abstract: 本文發現香港「潮語」主謂式基本上是不存在的,而偏正式佔「潮語」的大多數。我們認為主謂式的構詞法是不為語法所接受的,主謂式應該重新分析為偏正式;偏正式、述賓式、述補式、並列式都應該為語法所接受,它們的多寡跟新造詞的性質有關。主謂式與非主謂式的不對稱是形式的問題,而其他幾式的不對稱是功能的問題。
It is observed that no examples of “NV” compounds in which “N” is interpreted as the agentive subject can be found in Hong Kong trendy expressions (ciu4jyu5). “N” in the “NV” compounds should be analyzed as a modifier, which is an adjunct morphologically. It is argued that the non-existence of agentive “N” in the “NV” compounds is due to the lack of the light verb in their argument structure, subject to syntactic considerations.
