What is the measure word for measure word in Chinese?


My new classifier dictionary has over two hundred classifiers.

Do I use “个”as a classifier here or does “量词” have its own classifier?

Please also correct my grammar.

    I think you are right

    1. The verb form of "classifier" is "classify" which means 分類 (classify the things into different groups or kinds). I will use "quantifier" or "unit of measurement" to imply 量词.

    2. “个” is a kind of 量词, like "支", "片"

    3. Your sentence in Chinese is perfectly fine.
