MARVS is a theory for the representation of verbal semantics. This paper examines two types of modules and two sets of attributes, namely, role modules, event modules, role-internal attributes, and event-internal attributes, to account for the eventive and semantic factors of verbal polysemy. This study focuses on the polysemous verb chī. Based on MARVS, chī is divided into six senses. These senses are derived metonymically or metaphorically from the prototypical sense.
