Abstract

The thesis takes an empirical approach to the functions and translation methods for Chinese topicalized sentences. The present study attempts to probe into the functions and appropriate translation methods of the Chinese topicalized sentences. Finally, the study boils down to the following conclusions: (1) there are mainly four functions of Chinese topicalized sentences in different contexts, namely the descriptive function, the informative function, the focusing function and the cohesive function. (2) the proposed translation methods for Chinese topicalized sentences are restoring, splitting, restructuring and converting.
