Abstract: 粤语“得滞”、“乜滞”和“咁滞”都出现在述语的后面。本文的目的主要讨论它们的一些语法特点,并且分析它们的异同。基本上,本文认为“得滞”是一个词尾或后缀,黏附于形容词述语;“乜滞”和“咁滞”都是一个副词,原本位于动词之前,但经过动词短语移位/谓语移位后,在表面上形成了“后置副词”的词序。
The goal of this article is to explore the grammatical properties of three postverbal elements, namely dakzai, matzai, and gamzai, in Cantonese and compare their similarities and differences. I argue that dakzai is a suffix attached to adjectival predicates whereas both matzai and gamzai are preverbal adverbs underlyingly. The postverbal word order of matzai and gamzai is derived by verb movement/predicate-raising on the surface.
