This paper discusses the grammaticalization of Mandarin interrogative particle "ma". We argue that "ma"is grammaticalized in "VP + neg" construction through generalization of negative "wu" which is related to the extension of syntax; and that "ma" is subjectivisation in the "VP+neg" construction which is related to the extension of expression.
