dear colleagues, 

I would appreciate if you can give me some hints about (good) grammars
of contemporary Chinese.
I would appreciate also a (minimal) bibliography on phonology, morphology
and syntax of Chinese.

many thanks

sergio scalise

Subject: Word-initial [h]


Just read the phrase '...an historical survey'. Phonetically, the
determiner is pronounced with a schwa but why is it written 'an'? In
other words, what determines whether word-initial [h] is to be treated
as a vowel or consonant?
