1. From the use of function words to investigate the characteristics of Zeng Gong’s ancient Chinese prose ——Comparison with Ouyang Xiu's literary style

So far, there are few researches on the characteristics of Zeng Gong's articles. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to give specific explanations on the characteristics of Zeng Gong's articles.
Zeng Gong's articles are often described as "feminine". Tracing back to its source, In the Qing dynasty Yao Nai compared Zeng Gong's articles with Ouyang Xiu's and described them as "feminine". Therefore, there must be some similarities between Zeng Gong's article and Ouyang Xiu's. Therefore, when examining the characteristics of Zeng Gong's articles, it is crucial to examine the similarities between Zeng Gong's articles and Ouyang Xiu's articles.
This paper points out that the similarities between Zeng Gong's and Ouyang Xiu's articles are exactly the use of function words in their articles. Since function words are not directly related to context, it can be said that, to some extent, the author's personality can be seen from the use of function words. Through the investigation in this paper, it is proved that Zeng Gong's use of function words is very similar to Ouyang Xiu's.That is to say, Zeng Gong and Ouyang Xiu's use of function words is similar to each other, so both of their articles have been called "feminine".The reason why Zeng Gong's articles are similar to Ouyang Xiu's is that when he was young, Zeng Gong began to read Ouyang Xiu's articles so well that he could recite almost every one of them. Zeng Gong unconsciously learned how to use Ouyang Xiu's function words and applied them to his creation.

2. The controversy between Zhu Bia and Zhu Xi over Fan Zhongyan’s Fan gong shendao bei ming as illustrated in the newly discovered letters by Ouyang Xiu.

Without permission, Fan Chunren, Fan Zhongyan’s son, removed a part of the inscription from Fan gong shendao bei ming, which was created for Fan Zhongyan by Ouyang Xiu. Later, Zhu Bia and Zhu Xi had a heated disagreement over this incident.
In the course of their disagreement, they referred to certain letters from among the 96 newly discovered letters by Ouyang Xiu that I had reported on in 2011.
At first, when the letters Zhang Xu tie and Su Ming tie were mentioned, I was still unaware. Recent study, however, has established that these were the newly discovered letter nos. 57, 85, and 86.

1. About Zhou Bida’s Ouyang Wenzhong gong ji Compilation
Zhou Bida (1126–1204) of the Chinese Southern Song period undertook compilation of the 153-volume collection of Ouyang Wenzhong gong ji 120 years after the Northern Song writer Ouyang Xiu (1007–72) passed away. Zhou Bida took six years to complete the compilation, and in this presentation, we comprehensively examine the entire compilation process. We address the situation of various books related to Ouyang Xiu that existed before the compilation’s initiation, members of the compilation team, their roles, the parts they were in charge of, and the other materials that they relied on by analyzing the various sources in detail . In addition, we clarify that the portions of the manuscript completed by Zhou Bida were successively sent for printing and publishing and that Zhou Bida had been collecting and studying Ouyang Xiu’s works prior to the compilation. In this way, Zhou Bida’s compilation process for the 153-volume Ouyang Wenzhong gong ji is examined from various angles and comprehensively described.
