The language of epitaphs has obvious characteristics, as the zhiwen（志文）part often has the feature of parallel proses that usually use the form of antithesis and fond of citing allusions, while the mingwen(铭文）part has tidy sentence structures and requires rhymes. Probing allusions is of great significance for the accurate interpretation of epigraphs and the correct understanding of their contents. The decoding of allusions combined with the linguistic features of epitaphs and the formatting of the essay could help us to proofread, record and read epitaphs accurately.
