Chinese ditransitive construction is the construction which is defined by construction grammar. It has three arguments < agent recipient patient >, and its construction meaning is the delivery of patient from agent to recipient. Also, the prototype of Chinese ditransitive construction is the ditransitive construction of concrete object delivery, it expand to information delivery, name delivery, lose delivery through conceptual metaphor.
It is also effective in education to understand Chinese ditransitive construction from the perspective of a construction grammar. The human brain better memorizes and comprehends when associated with each other. From the view point of generative grammar, these(concrete object delivery, name delivery, lose delivery) are distinct constructions. So we have to study these three constructions individually.
On the other hand, from the view point of construction grammar, we can explain name delivery and lose delivery based on concrete object delivery. If we're educated in this point of view, learners are expected to better understand and remember the Chinese ditransitive construction.
