AbstractResearch on the Chinese high-frequency verb ch&#299; &lsquo;eat&rsquo; is manifold with quite diverse observations by various analytical proposals. Representative works include the five-element semantic chain [1], the emergent argument structure hypothesis [2], and the MARVS-based semantic accounts [3&ndash;6]. However, little consensus has been reached on the polysemy of ch&#299; and its semantic-to-syntactic properties. In this paper, a comprehensive study of ch&#299; with in-depth lexical semantic analysis is conducted by adopting a corpus-driven, frame-based constructional approach. It proposes that ch&#299; can be viewed as having &lsquo;one frame, three profiles and seven constructional meanings&rsquo; under the assumption that semantic distinctions can be made only if there are sufficient collo-constructional evidence. This study also demonstrates how the polysemy of ch&#299; can be understood by a two-dimensional analytical model to account for its semantic extensions based on the interaction of spatial and eventive readings.<br/> &copy; Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
