Influences of Different Thought Patterns on Syntactic Structures

XU Jing-liang(Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Changzhou Teachers College of Technology, Changzhou 213001, China)  
Through a contrastive study of some aspects of Chinese and English syntactic structures, this paper insists that the differences manifested at the sentential levels are the consequences of the influences by different intercultural thought patterns. In my paper, I first argue that language is a social phenomenon as well as a cultural one. I proceed to analyze the relationship among them and come to a conclusion that a nation' s culture, thought pattern and language should be interrelated and interact on one another. In the main part of my paper, I then endeavor to uncover the different thought patterns of the Chinese and English cultures by comparing some typical sentences in both the languages.
