A Study of Profiles in China Daily

1 Introduction

With the development of globalization, English has increasingly become an important tool for communication and trade between countries. At present, foreign demand for understanding China’s national conditions and life is also increasing. Under such condition, China officially issued China Daily in 1981, intending to let the world better understand China. As for characters, the main reported object, a more detailed description could lead a deeper understanding for readers. Therefore, we need to seriously study profile. People who use English as its target readers, take up the majority of the whole population. However, there are many differences between Chinese and English, and Chinese people always add their own Chinese thinking and language usage habits when learn and use English. As a result, present Chinese English is developed.

Nowadays, scholars’ research on Chinese English has been deepened, but it is still lacking in the areas of the application of Chinese English in specific literature style. Profile as an important part of news writing, its research value is seen as large. In order not to only improve the application of English and know more about potential development space, but also to help Chinese people to better study English in the future, the author decided to deeply study profile in China Daily. This study can not only let us better understand Chinese English, find out existing problems, and explore ways for improvement, but also find some common ground between western and Chinese culture and play a positive role in promoting the integration of different cultures. More importantly, deeply studying its characteristics including language aspect, content aspect or other aspects allows us to better seize media language, better understand the differences between Chinese English and Standard English, as well as to improve and perfect our own English writing. Therefore, better Chinese English articles can be created.
