Example text

Another is [-animate] category, for example, escape from a famine), [bi yu] (to take shelter from rain). We use reason objects 2 to represent this kind of reason object. The collecting linguistic material shows that, the reason object 2 has another accordant character which is called [huang] (famine) in [yu] (rain) in and [+uncontrollable]. [bing] (sickness) in [yang bing] (to have a rest because of sickness) all represent the uncontrollable things in an action or an event. Hence, we can use [+animate] and [+uncontrollable] to discriminate reason objects from the rest four non-canonical objects.

However, we found more phenomena that cannot be explained by the two features, such as: 24 J. Xia [14] hen pao le xuduo tian * very run le(particle) many day [15] hen shuo guo ruogan ci * very say guo(particle) a certain number time We then add another new feature [+subjectifiable quantity]. This new feature can not only help explain examples [14] and [15], but also examples [12] and [13]. So now we could integrate the three features [+approximate quantity], [+imaginary quantity], [+subjectifiable quantity].

In this section, we will discuss them individually. We try to select the distinctive semantic character of each category, that is, a unique character one category has but the other categories do not have. In these non-canonical objects, time objects are the easiest to identify. For example, [dagan hongwuyue] (to work in red May), [zuo shou] (to hold a birthday party) and [qi wugeng] (to get up at five). The typical feature is [+time]. This feature is not existed in other 6 categories. Hence, to use [±time], we can discriminate time objects from other non-canonical objects.
