形容词，作为词汇的重要组成成分之一，学生对于它的使用极为频繁，具有重要的应用价值。但是，从教学的现状看来，本地中学生对形容词的理解，只停留在词汇层面的意义，对于语法层面上的意义及用法还不熟悉。本文以中一及中二学生作为调查对象，通过问卷调查及学生作文，来考察他们对形容词兼类现象的认识情况，以此说明上述所提及的现象。 Adjective is an important component of the vocabularies that students learn. The frequent use of adjectives shows that adjectives have an important application value for students. However, local students only know about the adjective’s lexical meaning. They are not familiar with the adjectives’ grammatical functions. In order to illustrate the phenomenon mentioned above, we conducted a survey of secondary one and secondary two students’ applications of adjectives in their essays. Their uses and understandings of the different functions and features of adjectives were examined. It is found out that the students need to make good use of their relevant knowledge in order to understand clearly that adjectives have several functions and features. At the primary stage, they have already learned the basic meanings of the adjectives tested. Secondary students should learn some basic grammatical know ledges that are related to adjective usages so that they can enhance their understanding of the use of adjectives. Through exploring how these students understand the different usages of adjectives, we try to examine whether they have mastered sufficient knowledge of the basic Chinese grammar. Our study result shows that most of the students could hardly differentiate between adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs due to the lack of relevant knowledge and understanding of grammar.
