Abstract: The central issue of this study is the boundedness of adjectival predication in Chinese, which refers to the fact that different functional elements are required to accompany adjectival predicate, otherwise the sentence is ungrammatical. Previous research mostly studied the unbounedness and boundedness, markedness and unmarkedness of adjectival predication from a synchronic perspective, but little attention was paid to how this special feature developed over time. This dissertation aims to investigate the boundedness of adjectival predication from a historical perspective, and the following questions will be addressed in details: (i) what is the difference between ancient Chinese and modern Chinese with respect to the boundedness of adjectival predication? (ii) when was the boundedness of adjectival predication established? (iii) what was the motivation behind this change?
