Abstract

This article uses corpus analysis to analyze and summarize the types and contexts of the transferred reference of Chinese first person “I” and “we”, and analyze the motivation from the perspective of pragmatics. “I” has three types: “you”, “he/she” and “we”, and three contexts: formal occasions, turn-taking between the two parties, and entering a virtual scene; “We” has four types: “I”, “you”, “he/she” and “they”, and four contexts: expressing opinions, persuading or comforting each other, reducing responsibility and embodying close relationship. There are three motivations: to follow the politeness principle, to achieve pragmatic empathy or de-empathy and to adjust the pragmatic distance.
