I don't normally read about linguistics. Now I know why!

汉语里甚至有动词性主语加名词性谓语的句子,例如:

逃,僝头。(no more context, just this)

Maybe: Flee, you poor bastards!

僝头是什么意思呢?

I find 僝僽:

1.憔悴;烦恼。haggard

2.折磨。worried

3.埋怨;嗔怪。complain

4.排遣。distract oneself

  • 弱小;虚弱,如“以僝弱之人,博强横之人 ”

  • 沈家煊,名词动词 ISBN978-7-100-11363-2 Recommended on this website by Betty. I see a lot of people here, they just assume, Western Grammar is correct, therefore Chinese must follow the rules of Western Grammar. Many Chinese linguists say, that is false.
