Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the origin, evolution, and implication of the Mandarin word tóngzhi from 1911 to 2017. This particular word is interesting to investigate, because over the past century the word tóngzhì has undergone progressive change. This change is primarily due to deliberate language planning. Therefore, it is very important to increase understanding of the conceptual and practical usage of tóngzhì.
