The lexical studies are firmly based on large quantities of authentic textual data, by means of computer technology and a combination of qualitative and quantitative measures, aiming at a systematic integrated exploration of forms, meanings and functions of words. It holds words are fundamental linguistic resources for realizing meaning, lexis and syntax are inseparable, there are a variety of co-selections between lexis and syntax, lexis and semantics and lexis and pragmatics, whereby interfaces at different linguistic levels are formed. By exploring word behaviour at the interfaces, students are expected to develop his ability in investigating form, meaning and function in integration, from the new perspective and by using new mehodologies.
