First of all, I avail myself of this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to
all my teachers, classmates and friends, whose encouragement and support are so
precious in my three-year postgraduate life and study in the School of Foreign Studies
of Anhui University,
My special thanks go in particular to Associate Professor Qi Tao, my supervisor,
for his patience, gracious instructions, invaluable suggestions, and inspiring
comments, without which the completion of this paper would have been impossible.
This thesis also owes a great deal to Professor Hong Zeng-liu, Professor Chen
Zheng-fa, Professor Chen Bing, Professor Hua Quan-kun, and our conscientious
Australian teacher Annette Stewart, whose lectures have given me considerable
instruction and inspiration.
A special acknowledgement is made to my good friends Wang Yu-ning and Xia
Xing, as this thesis is shaped after the constant discussions with them.
Lastly, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my family for their
sincere concern, selfless consideration, and great support, which enables me to finish
this thesis in time.
