Abstract

In the study of the syntactic category EXPERIENTIAL, it has been known that the experiential is mainly concerned with indefinite (or nonspecific) situations. However, a comparative study of the experiential in Chinese, Japanese and Korean reveals that there exists another type of experiential which is concerned with definite (or specific) situations. All three languages share the semantic properties of repeatability, uniqueness, discontinuity and relevant duration for the experiential. The distinction between the indefinite and definite experiential is supported by syntactic as well as semantic evidence.
