Abstract: "DA" is a typical and frequently-used modern Chinese verb, and has been widely studied by so far by many scholars. Different from previous studies, this paper has incorporated both the synchronic description and diachronic comparison, qualitative analysis and quantitative technics, based on its performance in the raw material rather than the meaning in dictionaries, aimed at making detailed study into the six prototypes of its meaning system in six stage, i.e. the six stages defined by us from Six Dynasties to Qing Dynasty and the evolution of the meaning system of DA. By doing this, we hope not only to be able to achieve a profound understanding into this word, but also to attain new findings concerning the theory of meaning evolution.
