  • ISSN : 0256-5986



This article presents an initial attempt to explore cohesive explicitation of conjunctions in a machine-readable corpus of English source texts and their Chinese translations. The study makes use of an English - Chinese parallel corpus and some software tools to investigate the phenomenon of explicitation in a systematic way. Results of a pilot study are presented to indicate the potential and problems of using corpus techniques to investigate wide-spread features of translated texts in Asian languages like Chinese.
