표어는 제한된 글자 수에 짧고 간결하게 전달해야 하는 형식상 제약이 있고, 전달 되는 내용은 정부의 주요 정책 알림에서부터 일상에서의 정보 전달 및 개개인의 행동수칙 등의 요지를 담고 있는 만큼 매우 중요한 역할을 한다. 또 사람들의 인식변 화에도 영향을 줌으로 명확하게 강조하여 명시해야 한다. 이러한 표어의 취지와 목적을 효율적으로 달성하기 위해서 중국 사람들은 표어 문구에서 다양한 수(数)와 양(量) 표현을 활용하였다. 표어에서 수(数)나 양(量)을 활용한 구체적인 표현 방법은 수량사구, 중첩, 대명사, 특수 구문 활용 그리고 정도부사 및 사자성어 활용이다.
