Windowing and Gapping in Imperative Sentences: on the Basis of Talmy's"Causal-chain Windowing"Approach

吕思琪  
【摘要】:This paper intends to analyze the six types of English imperative sentences proposed by Chen (1984) from a perspective of causal-chain windowing. It comes to the conclusions that Talmy's causal-chain windowing approach as well as the cognitive underpinnings of causal windowing and gapping is proved to be applicable in English imperative structures, and that generally speaking, the final portion of an imperative sentence is always windowed while the intermediate portions gapped.
