This paper describes some of our attempts in extending Zhong, a Chinese HPSG sharedgrammar. New analyses for two Chinese specific phenomena, reduplication and the SUODE structure, are introduced. The analysis of reduplication uses lexical rules to capture both the syntactic and semantic properties (amplification in adjectives and diminishing in verbs). Words showing non-productive reduplication are entered in the lexicon, and the semantic relations will be captured in an external resource (the Chinese Open Wordnet). The SUODE structure constrains the meanings of relative clauses to a gapped-object interpretation.
