The total of eight major general-purpose dictionaries are analyzed for their macro- and micro-structural features on the basis of the relatively uniform method of lexicographic description employed in the study of modern dictionaries.

This study takes a close look at so-called serial verb constructions against a corpus of data from the Chinese.
