Contrastive Study of Cohesion in Chinese and Japanese Contexts——A Case Study of "Kong Yi-ji"

ZHANG Ying (School of Foreign Languages,Tongji University,Shanghai 200092,China)  
Although comparative studies between Chinese language and Japanese language are very fruitful,most of them focus on phonology,words or particular linguistic phenomena.This article attempts to compare the two languages in terms of text through a case study of "Kong Yi-ji" with M. A.K.Halliday's Systemic Functional Theory.The author probes into the manifestations of the cohesive devices in Japanese and Chinese texts.Japanese texts use more determiners and conjunctions,indicating a higher degree of subjectivity.In contrast,Chinese texts use more pronouns,and in general,are high-context.By observing the principle of Fixed Point of View in texts,the article highlights the importance of the syntactic research findings about this principle in text research.
