Abstract: 上海话的句末助词"(口伐)"用来构成是非问句。带"(口伐)"的疑问句可以充当讲述动词的宾语,而且在不同的动词后有相异的表现;"(口伐)"会使句子中的疑问指代成分成为量化成分;"(口伐)"不能附着在否定句后面。如果将带"(口伐)"问句分析为正反选择问句,将"(口伐)"分析为包含否定与选择疑问两种功能,这些句法特性就可以得到合理的解释。
The sentence-final particle va in Shanghai dialect is a marker for yes-no questions.A va question can function as the complement clause of a bridge verb.Va is not compatible with negative clauses,and within the domain of va wh-expressions will function as existential elements.The syntactic properties of va can be accounted for if a va question is analyzed as an AB-not-A question,with va playing the role of negative and interrogative morpheme at the same time.
