Abstract [en]

SVC in Mandarin Chinese is a controversial phenomenon partially due to its conflicting definitions and classifications. As a data-driven project, this thesis focuses on 118 "true" SVCs and classifies them into four groups. The data can be freely accessed on the online multi-lingual database TypeCraft. In this thesis we mainly discuss the semantic feature of Mandarin SVCs, and explore the semantic relationship between V1 and V2. In addition, we try to outline the internal semantic structure of our data, in order to develop a general semantic classification of Mandarin SVC.
