This study examines the challenging issues in the semantic annotation of the characteristics of verbal information of Mandarin Chinese. It proposes a frame-based constructional approach that aligns with linguistic premises in Frame Semantics, Construction Grammar and Cognitive Grammar. Given that semantic processing has a lot to do with human cognitive capacities, semantic transfer and profile on the basis of natural inferences of event chains have to be considered in verb categorization and representation. The proposed approach has been adopted in analyzing a number of major classes of Mandarin verbs.
