This article explores the comparison of inequality in Hakka, the investigation of which includes data collected from fieldwork in Taiwan, dialectal materials, and early Hakka missionary documents. What is in common in the comparison of inequality in Hakka is the coexistence of two word orders, while the diversities are represented in the predicates occurred in the ‘exceed’ type of comparative, and the lexical forms of comparative degree marker. Three issues are discussed in this article: (i) the type of comparative indigenous to Hakka; (ii) the causes of double comparative marker; (iii) the semantic evolutions of the comparative degree marker ‘GUO’.
