Zhang Ailing's works have a very unique linguistic charm, not only inheriting the aesthetic characteristics such as the image, simplicity, and harmony of the traditional Chinese literary language, but also drawing on the Western complex language, accurate description and analysis and other factors to achieve classical and modern ingenuity. This article will take Zhang Ailing's works as the starting point for analysis, and explore the changes in the Europeanization of Chinese literary language in her works, and explore the influence of Western languages on Chinese literary language.
