The aim of this study is to investigate the morphological characteristics of blends based on loanword truncation in modern Chinese. By seperating blends from compounds, derivatives, clippings and loanwords, I show that modern Chinese blends exhibit three tendencies. First, as to concatenation typology, AD type is preferred because of the bathtub effect (Aichison 2003). Second, the word-initial monosyllable is secreted from the source loanword due to the "cranberry morpheme" effect and "monosyllabic myth" (Y. R. Chao 1968). Third, blends are nativized and lexicalized through the morphological reanalysis and analogy. In conclusion, blends call for the need of diachronic notions of morphemes and the importance of word-based model in morphology.
