成语的注音和拼写历来引起很大争议。《现代汉语词典》作为规范语文词典 ,在成语注音方面有自己的特色。它强调成语按词分写 ,并且很注意成语内部成分的文言特点。本文利用计量手段 ,对《现代汉语词典》成语注音的按词分写情况进行定量分析 ,凸现特色 ,找出不足 ,促使《现代汉语词典》成语注音能更加完善。Intense arguments have arisen on the phonetic notation and pinyin spelling of quadrisyllabic idioms. As a standard dictionary of language and writing, Contemporary Chinese Dictionary (Xiandai Hanyu Cidian) shows some distinctive features in notating the pinyin of the quadrisyllabic idioms, paying much attention to the features as residue of Archaic Chinese in the constitutive elements of the idioms and notating them word by word. This article offers an analysis of the word by word notating practice in this dictionary using a quantitative approach, managing to indicate its shortcomings in this respect so that this already high quality dictionary could be further improved.
