The application of function words in classical Chinese is quite extensive. The effective application of function words in classical Chinese can express the stylistic features of classical Chinese, and the use of virtual words to carry out the writing process is also helpful for understanding the author's subjective intentions and thoughts and emotions. Based on the application of virtual words in classical Chinese, this thesis studies and analyzes the use of virtual words in Ouyang Xiu's "History of the Five Dynasties", and discusses the stylistic features of "Five-generation Historical Records" by using the use of virtual words. And to study the use of the virtual words by Ouyang Xiu, compare and analyze the usage rules of the virtual words in the "History of the Five Dynasties" and the use of the virtual words in other articles of Ouyang Xiu, and find out the use of the virtual words in Ouyang Xiu's writing process. When Ouyang Xiu applied the virtual words in the biography of the Five Dynasties, in order to prevent the author's subjective intentions from intervening, the amount of virtual words was relatively small. In the process of commentary writing, because the author's subjective emotional restrictions are relatively small, the author uses a large number of words to express their subjective emotions. This is also the main feature of Ouyang Xiu's application of virtual words according to different styles.
