Chinese Word Order Analysis Based on Binary Dependency Relationships
Based on binary dependency relationships of notional words, this paper presents a calculating method of word order and a representation scheme as well. Calculations of sentence examples show that the binary dependency relationship product of SOV, OSV etc. may be turned into the semantic structure of SVO. Therefore, SVO is not only the simplest but also the complete structure of Chinese sentences. Also, modifier-core structure prevents the formation of a sentence, which intends to express more content. From this perspective, SVO order and the disharmony between VO and PPV, are the same law in two opposite ways.
