Is the 'structure of verbal image' in the Chinese language different from those in western languages? Starting from these topics, some colleagues in the Department of Chinese, Translation and Linguistics, City University of Hong Kong: Prof. CHENG Chin-chuan (Moderator) Prof. ZHANG Longxi Prof. XU Liejiong Dr. Randy LaPolla Dr. PAN Haihua Dr. Jenny Wang Mr. Caesar Lun will be exploring, in an informal, free, and open-minded atmosphere, some interesting language phenomena from the perspectives of comparative literature, formal linguistics, functional linguistics and cognitive linguistics.
