This paper makes the degree“adjective de complement”construction the research target,using Construction Grammar as a theoretical guidance, combined with associated word“de”complement related research,using a combination of form and meaning,description and interpretation of phase, to make a deep analysis and an inspection system.The full text includes these following main parts:Chapter one:Introduction:This study identified the degree“adjective de complement”construction;brief the significance and the status quo of degree“adjective de complement”construction research;introduction of this paper’s use of research methods and sources corpus.Chapter two:The classification of the degree“adjective de complement”construction.Because complement C in the constructions is the most complex part,according to Complement C,we can divide these complement into four categories:direct form of the degree of complement, indirect form the degree of complement,complement and descriptive complement and the complement-like complement.Chapter three:Views the degree“adjective de complement”structure By Construction Grammar.This part demonstrates the existence of the constructional semantics,put forward the semantics of degree“adjective de complement”construction,and summed up the benefits to use the Construction Grammar to explain of this type of structure:can avoid circular,avoid increasing the sense,and can better explain the interaction of the construction and the ingredients.Chapter four:Analyzed the interaction of the degree“adjective de complement”construction,including the restriction of putting adjectives in construction,the restriction of putting complement in construction,the influence of construction over lexical meaning and the ways to show the constructional semantics.Chapter five:four ways to achieve Constructional semantics:the coincidence of constructional semantics and lexical meaning;the both existence of the constructional semantics and lexical meaning;the constructional semantics shading the lexical meaning;the constructional semantics adding the lexical meaning.Chapter six:Conclusions:The conclusions summarized in this article.
