- Prosodic syntax is a new subject based on prosody and established on the basis of Chinese, which has played a very positive role in the study of Chinese grammar. In modern Chinese, the use cases of “yòu... yòu...” combination in language communication are very extensive, and the elements that can be matched with words or phrases. The number of syllables shows certain regularity, that is, the number of syllables in the front component is not more than it in the latter components. And then the combination form is grammatically correct. It is thought that this law is played by prosody rules other than semantics and syntax. Specifically, the Nuclear Stress Rule of Chinese restricts their combination forms. This analysis provides a new perspective for the study of Chinese grammar, enriching the theory of Chinese research to a certain extent, and has certain theoretical value.
