    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to consider mismatch phenomena between ‘AgentㆍPatient’ and ‘SubjectㆍObject’ in Mandarin Chinese, and tries to understand these phenomena based on theories of cognitive grammar and construction grammar. ‘AgentㆍPatient’ is a concept of semantics, and ‘SubjectㆍObject’ is a concept of syntax. But as the integrated research on syntax, semantics, pragmatics advances, there has been a growing tendency to equate agent with subject and patient with object. However, there are many mismatch phenomena between ‘AgentㆍPatient’ and ‘SubjectㆍObject’. Accordingly, many linguists have made many inquiries into these phenomena and tried to explain them in many ways. This study first presented a brief overview of the relation of ‘AgentㆍPatient’ and ‘SubjectㆍObject’ and sentences that have mismatch phenomena. In the 1950s, there were controversies about how to give a definition of subject and object. There were two different opinions, one claims that they have to be determined by the syntactic positions (subject-verb-object), the other claims that they have to be determined by their meaning, which means subject has agent meaning, object has patient meaning. Afterward, this study claims that subdivision of theta-role can be useful for solve the problem of mismatch phenomena. Because this can resolve the contradiction between the aforesaid two different opinions and more tangible and obvious theta-role can be assigned to every argument. Lastly, this study explained mismatch phenomena between ‘AgentㆍPatient’ and ‘SubjectㆍObject’ using the terms of ‘Saliency’, ‘Conceptual Blending Theory’, ‘Gestalt’ in the theories of Cognitive Grammar and Construction Grammar.

    Rebellion and Regression: Reviewing on the Literary Writing on the Homosexuality in the Korean and Chinese Classical Literature - focusing on Bang Han Rim Jeon and Multi-burial of Two Homo Lovers

    Fubo | 2018, (50) | pp.55~74 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Literary writing on homosexuality has stubborn vitality, and its value not only reflects in the literature domain, but also in the fields of history and anthropology. Bang Han Rim Jeon and Multi-burial of Two Homo Lovers are both eccentric works about literary writing on homosexuality in Korean and Chinese classical literature. The former showing a chaste marriage between two women tried to arouse the collective unconsciousness of the matriarchal society. The latter describing the true love between two men by keeping the promise never marrying women, showed the subversion of the traditional ethics. The two challenges both proclaimed the rebellion against the tradition. Their final failures symbolically achieved the objection of the confession on the rebellion and the return for the tradition.

    A study of an MP&GI film “Our Sister Hedy”: From the “trans-regional” and “trans-media” perspectives

    麥欣恩 | 2018, (50) | pp.103~131 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This article focuses on the film “Our Sister Hedy” made in 1957, investigating the MP&GI studio production of “illegal” Hollywood film adaptations and film remakes during the 1950s and 60s when the copyright law was mostly not enforced. Within this backdrop, the article examines Hong Kong’s social, political, and historical conditions reflected in the movie storylines that helped reinforce trans-regional perspectives during the Cold War era. These border-crossing adaptations and movie remakes exemplify the film industry’s role in the Westernization and imitation of Hollywood’s culture. In this article, I introduced comparative analyses to examine the film “Our Sister Hedy”, revealing how the Hong Kong remakes were shaped by and responded to the historical and geopolitical circumstances of that era. During this era, MP&GI was famous for shooting “wen-yi films” (melodrama) and comedies, and therefore this study will also conduct analysis from a film aesthetics perspective on these genre’s impact on the production of “Our Sister Hedy”.
