Deng Qi;Yang Zhong;Northeast Normal University;Yanshan University;  
This paper makes a corpus-based quantitative contrast between English and Chinese sensory adjectives"cold"and"leng",from functional and cognitive perspectives. The correlations between semantic cognition and semantic functions are examined.The results show that the linguistic representations of metaphorical meaning are closely correlated with their semantic functions.The semantic construal of English and Chinese sensory adjectives is realized by both lexical and syntactic means.
