Abstract: As two words with opposite meanings, dou1 and shao3 are expected to be similar and different in various environments. In this work, we looked into the construction of [numeral + measure word/classifier + noun] (hereafter [Num + MW/CL + N]) and explored in what ways both words present an asymmetric phenomenon. We found that dou1 carries a numeral meaning while shao3 lacks this use. Based on the analysis of these two words in the Sinica Corpus, this paper argued that dou1 is better categorized as ‘Neu’ and suggested that dou1 in [Num + MW/CL + N] serves two functions: one is for counting numbers; the other is for the expression of quantities. These findings can be related to the use of dou1 as complement and as numeral.
