Details to CLD

We present the Chinese Lexical Database 2.1 (CLD 2.1). The CLD is a new large-scale lexical database for Mandarin Chinese that provides over 260 descriptive and lexical-distributional variables for more than 48,644 words in simplified Chinese. The information in the CLD can be used for the construction of experimental stimuli and the analysis of experimental data in psycholinguistic research on simplified Chinese.

The CLD can be downloaded for free, and an online search interface is provided at
