To better deal with Chinese zero elements, this paper makes a theoretical analysis from discourse perspective and completes the construction of the Chinese Discourse Zero Corpus (CDZC). First, the necessity of corpus construction has been explored based on the research of existing theoretical and data sources. Then, the topdown and forword search annotation strategy and the combination of the human machine are used to complete corpus annotation. Finally, the detailed statistics analysis shows that CDZC can fully reflect the characters of Chinese linguistic and provide corpus resources for related research.

Key words: Chinese zero elements, discourse perspective, corpus construction, Chinese discourse zero corpus


针对中文零指代问题, 从篇章视角进行理论分析, 并完成中文篇章零元素语料库(Chinese Discourse Zero Corpus, CDZC)的构建工作。首先, 整理和分析已有的理论研究以及语料资源, 探究篇章层面中文零元素语料库标注的必要性。然后, 采用自底向上、前向搜索的标注策略和人机结合的半自动标注方式, 完成CDZC语料库的构建。最后, 对该语料库进行一系列详细的统计分析。结果表明, CDZC能够充分反映出中文零元素省略的语言特点, 为相关研究提供语料资源支持。
