In Mandarin there are several ways to express the meaning 'many', such as by using adjective 多 (duō), 大量 (dàliàng), or by using phrase, such as 不胜枚举 (bù shèng méi jǔ). Generally, those words or phrases perform the grammatical functions of attribute, predicate or complement. They can also perform the grammatical function of adjunct adverbial. The phrase '千X万Y' also means 'many'. 'X' and 'Y' can be a noun, a verb or an adjective. 'X' and 'Y' can be filled with the same word, such as 千 错 万 错 (qiān cuò wàn cuò = lots of errors), can also be substituted with different words like千言万语 (qiān yán wàn yǔ = many words). Not all nouns, verbs and adjectives can occupy the position of 'X' and 'Y'. This paper will discuss the 'X' and 'Y' in the phrase "千X万Y" syntactically and semantically. Data analyzed in this research were obtained from the online corpus Center for Chinese Linguistics PKU (Peking University). This research will analyze the types of nouns, verbs and adjectives that could occupy the position of 'X' and 'Y'. The aim objective of this research is to help Chinese language learners to use the pattern "X 千 万 Y" correctly.
