Abstract

In Chinese, “Zhang”(张) is used as a quantifier to describe flat objects, which is similar to the quantifier “Mei”(枚). Besides, they have many other different usages. Summarizing the commonalities and differences from the modified objects, it is found that they have similar categorization principles, and their prototype members have different extent expansion under the driving factors. The similarity of principles reflects the commonality of human cognition of language, while the specific differences reflect the diversity of human civilization.
