Abstract: Construction grammar [1] or compositional semantics [2] are two
important approaches to lexical semantics. This study provides a fine-grained
comparison of 趕gan3 and 搶 qiang3 through examining both their compositional
meanings and their constructional patterns. Using Chinese WordSketch
[3], [4] to extract collocational generalizations, we detail the contrasts and similarities
of the uses of these two verbs based on the one billion word Chinese
Gigaword Corpus 1.0. Our analysis is also facilitated by the sense inventory of
both words based on the Chinese WordNet (CWN). In this study, we show that
the durative meanings of 趕gan3 and 搶 qiang3 can be extended to the nouns
following these two verbs, and that individual lexical meanings of the constructions
[gan3/qiang3+noun] can be decomposed from the constructions. We also
show that both these verbs have related meanings even if their core meanings
do not seem to be related.
