Abstract
This paper uses the basic category, metaphor, metonymy and prototype theory in cognitive linguistics to analyze the meaning range of Japanese word “drop in”. For the polysemous verb of Japanese vocabulary, the second language learners are difficult to distinguish between the usages in the learning process, because of improper understanding, or even misuse phenomenon is often seen. For the teaching difficulties, teachers should positively guide students to use polysemous words for emphasis. On explaining multiple meanings, it should analyze its common points and clarify extension relationship, which is the necessary link of helping students to understand and memorize fundamentally. This paper starts from the perspective of cognitive linguistics to analyze the polysemy construction of polysemous verbs.
