To many Chinese students, learning the words such as "make" and "do" seems a piece of cake, yet learning how to use them appropriately is anther case. This paper aims to investigate Chinese learners' use of the verbs "make" and "do", two major representatives of high-frequency words from the perspective of de-lexical uses by comparing authentic learner data with native speaker data using computerized corpora, thus to shed some light on vocabulary learning and teaching in China.
