準繫詞語 is my best guess as to what it says, what does this mean? I know it's some kind of word class description, but these jerks wrote it in 繁体字 in the smallest font possible... ( and/or Im an idiot)

Any ideas guys? 😢😵

    Not nice calling them "jerks". Anyone with a bit of habit (apparently including you!) can read 繫. – vermillon Dec 13 '15 at 0:06

Yes, it says 準繫詞語 (准系词语), and according to Chinese Wikipedia, this means pseudo-copula.

    Thanks !!! 😁 In case anyone looks at this in the future I've discovered a pseudo copula is a fancy linguistic term that means: a word that links a subject in a sentence with a predicate. But a seMI copula is a linking verb that is less commonly used e.g. the dog IS sick is a main copula and the dog SEEMS sick is a semi copula. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copula_(linguistics) – 3龙花 Dec 13 '15 at 1:07
  • @3龙花 No worries. Though did you mean to say a copula is a word that links the subject and the predicate, whereas a pseudo-copula is what you stated above that’s also known as a semi-copula? – liflon Dec 13 '15 at 2:10
