This paper provided two linguistic evidences to identify the inchoation of emotions: kāishǐ 'begin' and (bù)qǐlái 'literally (not) stand up, meaning (not) begin to'. It collected and annotated the data in Sinica Corpus and Gigaword Corpus based on some guidelines. Compared to Chang et al. (2000), our results indicate that though in total Type A emotions (such as gāoxìng 'happy') outnumber Type B emotions (such as kuàilè 'joyful') in expressing inchoation (Chang et al. 2000); depression and sadness of Type B has a higher tendency of being inchoative. This research not only deepens the understanding to emotion, but also helps question-answering tasks in natural language processing.
