This paper is a research about the relationship between prosodic and syntactic-semantic structure, based on the analysis of sentences with consecutive third tone which include Chinese adverb “ye” that have separate semantic direction. The following results were obtained from this study; First, when the third tone occurs consecutively in Chinese phrases or sentences, disyllable first form one foot, and then the rest of the foots are determined at lexical level. Second, in normal tempo, the most basic prosodic domain is disyllable or trisyllable, and the same applies to sentences or phrases with adverb “ye”. Third, in fast tempo, phrases or sentences including “ye” appear the same result as the consecutive third tone sandhi in fast tempo.
Given the results above, Chinese adverb “ye” doesn’t make any prosodical change when it indicates a subject or object. Semantic difference of “ye” appears through syntactic difference, not prosodical change, therefore subjects are essential while objectives can be omitted in the latter part of a sentence when “ye” indicate a subject, and the subjects must be omitted and the object must be presented when “ye” indicate object.
