about this item

This exhaustive encyclopedia summarizes the current state of knowledge in Chinese linguistics, making the opaque field of Chinese phonology more accessible to the international community of linguists and scholars. The 500 articles explore syntactic theory, phonological structure, the genealogy of Sinitic languages, the writing system, the history of Chinese linguistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics studies on Chinese, language variations, and the influence of Chinese on other languages. Several papers describe the areal and sociolinguistic situation of non-Sinitic languages or the history and general properties of a language family. Chinese characters are accompanied by an English transcription in traditional format with tone marks. Volume five lists articles by title and subject area, classic books, abbreviations, and transcription conversion tables. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
