From genitive to conjunctive: Coordinator li55 in Chongqing Mandarin

Yin Zhong & Sicong Dong

Chinese Lexical Semantics. CLSW 2022. Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

The genitive marker li55 in Chongqing Mandarin can also function as a coordinating conjunction. This function develops from the usage of li55 to link numbers or quantities in calculations. Several restrictions are found on the coordinator li55, e.g., conjuncts must be nominal and shall be all the members of a definite set; li55 must be used between every two conjuncts and can only be used in informal registers. Similar coordinate function of genitive markers can also be found in other Sinitic languages while rarely seen in other language families, which merits further typological investigations.
