Abstract: In Huangdi Neijing (Huangdi’s Internal Classics), There exists the phenomenon that the preceding part and the latter part explain each other. This inter-textual interpretation style can be roughly divided into four categories. From the perspective of the chapter relationship, it can be divided into two categories: the whole chapter or part of the chapter being the interpretation of the other chapter. From the perspective of the text relationship, it can be divided into another two categories: within one chapter, the latter part explain the preceding part; the text and its interpretation text are indistinguishable within the text. Studying the interpretation style of Huangdi Neijing could help us develop intuitive understanding of the original text and a deeper understanding of its connotation. In this process, we can also find the phenomenon of extra and missed characters in Huangdi Neijing, which is helpful for providing a new approach to the collation and edition of the classics.

Key words: Huangdi Neijing, interpretation, style
