Abstract: The topic of this thesis is a partial contrastive study of compounds in Mandarin and hyphenated compounds in English. The comparison will be done mainly in regards to the function and word order of the constituent parts. That is, I will concentrate on comparing the English and Chinese compounds, and pointing out some of the more interesting features in regards to the functions of the constituent parts and the general structure of the compounds. I lack a strong background in Chinese linguistics. However, I have tried to compensate by relying on Y. R. Chao's A Grammar of Spoken Chinese, and by soliciting the aid of my advisor, Dr. Hsin-I Hsieh. Most of the technical terms as well as examples that I am using are directly from Y. R. Chao's text. However, some other terms that I use were of my own choice. Therefore, in order to give this discussion a measure of uniformity, I will define terms as specifically as possible. I will not make a special glossary, but will define the terms as they appear.
