Abstract本文從句法—語義對接的層面考察"NP的NP"名詞短語中定語和中心語的語義關係,論證單純的語用分析或者"謂詞隱含"分析是不能清晰解決定中語義關係的。定中語義關係有一部分存在謂詞隱含,受語用和上下文的影響,有一部分不存在謂詞隱含,不受語用的影響,而是受制於定語在名詞短語中所處的句法位置,獲得"結構義"而非"隱含義"

This paper examines the semantic relationships between the modifier NP and the modifiee NP in the "NP de NP" construction from the perspective of syntax-semantics interface. It is argued that neither the pragmatic approach, nor the ’Hidden Predicate’ account, can adequately account for the actual semantic relations in the "NP de NP" construction. Not all the "NP de NP" expressions involve a hidden predicate and there is a systematic pattern of meaning in the "NP de NP" expression that is independent of contextual and pragmatic influence. Although the ones with a hidden predicate are indeed influenced by pragmatic factors or the context, it is shown in this paper that there are expressions involving NP de NP that do not have a hidden predicate and whose semantic meaning is not subject to pragmatic or contextual influence but exemplifies a systematic pattern which is determined by the modifier’s syntactic position in the nominal phrase in question, independent of context.
