Using Chinese Gigaword Corpus and Chinese Word Sketch in linguistic Research

Abstract

We explore the possibility of deeper linguistic research based on corpus and computational linguistic tools in this paper. In particular, we adopt Chinese Word Sketch, the application of Word Sketch Engine to Chinese GigaWord Corpus, for linguistic research. We apply Chinese Sketch Engine results to deeper linguistic account such as selectional restriction and event type selection. The study is based on the comparison of two basic verbs of ingestion: chi1 ‘to eat’ and he1 ‘to drink’.
