A study on lexical ambiguity in mandarin Chinese

Abstract

This study explored lexical ambiguity in Mandarin Chinese. Previous studies have concentrated on the lexical ambiguity resolution of nouns and verbs in the sentential context, while others presented different results for ambiguity resolution in English and Italian. Based on [1] study, which focused on the cognitive processing of strong bias words in the sentential context, the current study proposed two modular and interactive hypotheses and designed two experiments—a production test and a YES-NO test—to distinguish lexical and metaphorical bias found in Mandarin Chinese. This article would present the results of the two experiments, followed by a discussion of the related senses of lexical ambiguity in Mandarin Chinese.
