Abstract: The theoretical framework of this thesis is cognitive and functional linguistics. Classifiers, as a characteristic that distinguishes Chinese from many other languages and their cognitive motivation deserves a serious study. However, the previous research in this area has been found limited and inadequate. To date, research is focused on the nominal Classifier and its association with the noun, while classifier phrases with the verb and the adjective havena??t received adequate attention. In addition, the relation among the noun, the verb and the adjective could not be unveiled due to unsystematized research and framework. My thesis, based on cognitive and functional analysis, attempts to provide a comprehensive study of Chinese Classifiers. Issues investigated include constructions of the classifier with nouns, verbs and adjectives, redefinition of a??bounded/unboundeda?? features, and so forth. Through systematical research on classifiers and the related constructions, the thesis also reveals the cognitive relationship among nouns, verbs and adjectives.
