This study explores syntactic constraints and semantic properties of inverted causative structures in Modern Chinese. First, NP1 functions as a causer and can only be an inanimate noun or an abstractive noun. Secondly, VP of inverted causative structures can appear as an intransitive verb or a transitive verb, and most of these VPs either are Predictive Property of Adverbs or have the characteristics of an activity verb or stative verb that features a certain process. It is essential for VP to have ‘le’ to function as a Causative Predicate. Thirdly, NP2 can only be an animate noun (personal pronouns, agency noun , proper noun). In other words, NP2 can only be definite referents, not indefinite referents. Fourthly, NumP can be Temporal Classifier, Actional Classifier, Temporary Classifier, Numeral Classifier, and represents ‘result of caused event by action’ with VP. Fifthly, inverted causative structures have semantic features of [+Mirativity], [-Control], and speaker-subjectivity about by Resultive Quantity Causing Event can be involved. These structures can mean Large Subjective Quantity or Small Subjective Quantity depending on intervention of other Syntactic Elements.
