    Abstract: This paper aims to explain the different interpretations of the sentential particle le with a unified account. Due to its different interpretations in different contexts, it is labelled as different identities, such as an inchoative marker (Chao 1968), a perfect aspect marker (Li et al. 1982) and a marker of change (Soh 2009). Having examined the theories mentioned above, we find that the most functions of the sentential particle le is similar to the perfect aspect. Hence, I agree with Li et al.’s proposal that the sentential particle le is a perfect aspect marker. This paper firstly presents the functions of the sentential particle le and shows that these functions result from the properties of the perfect aspect. In addition, I compare the English perfect aspect with the sentential particle le. The purpose of this comparison is to show that the sentential particle le is similar to the perfect aspect, but also to show that the differences, i.e. the present perfect puzzle and the change of state reading, do not matter to the proposal that the sentential particle le is a perfect aspect marker. Finally, I provide further evidence from the study of two particles which denotes a change of state reading, jiu and cai, to illustrate that the change-of-state property of the sentential particle le is also part of the properties of the perfect aspect even though the English perfect does not yield a change of state reading.
