The paradox of the construction [V zai NPloc] and its meanings in the Beijing dialect of Mandarin

Résumé : This article focuses on the meanings of the postverbal locative construction in the Beijing dialect of Mandarin, as attested in a spoken corpus collected in 2000-2001. We show that in contrast to Standard Mandarin, where this construction has been argued to have two meanings (durative and terminative) for verbs of posture and placement, on the one hand, and in uniformity with Beijing Mandarin texts of the late Qing and with Northern Mandarin data, on the other, this construction in the Beijing dialect of Mandarin has only one, terminative, meaning for all verbs. We also propose an explanation for the existing exceptions to this pattern.
