ABSTRACT

The rapid development of computational linguistics has put forward higher requirements for accurate semantic perception. As the foundation of the semantic understanding of natural language, much previous research has focused on the micro-structure of word meanings of different parts of speech and its sub-categories. This paper takes the anger-type psychological adjectives in modern Chinese as the research object and studies its semantic structures under the guidance of semantic primitive theory by describing the semantic features and the semantic primitive structural attributes, conducting the semantic analysis, extracting the semantic primitives and building a semantic primitive set of the anger-type psychological adjectives in modern Chinese. The result of this paper clarifies the similarities and differences between the meanings of all the anger-type psychological adjectives and solves the problems of circular and identical definitions in dictionaries, which to some extent is helpful in providing support for machines in language understanding and automatic language production therefore improves the speed and accuracy of language processing.
