Abstract: MANDARIN A+YI+X, B+YI+Y CONSTRUCTION HAS MULTIPLE CONSTRUCTIONAL MEANINGS ENCODED BY THE SAME SYNTACTIC CONSTRUCTION. WE STUDY THE CONDITIONS FOR SELECTION AND/OR PREFERENCE OF CONSTRUCTIONAL MEANINGS OF THIS CONSTRUCTION IN THIS PAPER. STUDY OF CORPUS DATA SHOWED THAT POS AND SEMANTIC ROLES OF A/B X/Y CANNOT RELIABLY PREDICT DIFFERENT CONSTRUCTIONAL MEANINGS. WE FURTHER SHOW THAT CONDITIONS THAT CAN PREDICT THE DIFFERENCES IN CONSTRUCTIONAL MEANING ARE THE EVENT STRUCTURES OF A AND B¿S, AS WELL AS REFERENTIAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ¿YI(ONE)+X¿AND ¿YI(ONE)+Y¿ .
