zhī

  1. zhī pronoun him / her / it / them
    Domain: Classical Chinese 古文

  2. zhī particle used between a modifier and a word to form a word group
    Domain: Modern Chinese 现代汉语 , Subdomain: Function Words 虚词
    Notes: (1) used between a modifier and a word to form a word group a. to express a subordinate relation; b. to express an ordinate decorative function; (2) Used between a subject and predicate to unify them. In Literary Chinese, 之 is placed between a noun and a verb phrase in the pattern 'N 之 VP' to nominalize it. The verb phrase becomes nominalized, somewhat like an English gerund (Pulleyblank 1995, p. 64).

    Notes: A transitive verb with the object being the destination of travel (Pulleyblank 1995, p. 79)

    Domain: Classical Chinese 古文
    Notes: A demonstrative pronoun, similar to the modern Chinese 这 or 那. This sense is rarely used, with use mostly confined to the Shijing and Zhuangzi (Pulleyblank 1995, p. 79).

    Domain: Modern Chinese 现代汉语 , Subdomain: Function Words 虚词
    Notes: For example, 孝弟也者,其為仁之本與 'Filial piety and fraternal submission! - are they not the root of all benevolent actions?.' (Lunyu 1:2)
