Abstract:

This is an anthology on topics in the grammar of Chinese (Sinitic)
languages. Its aim is to meld historical and typological approaches in
the examination of grammatical phenomena in order to show the extent
to which both earlier stages of Chinese, as well as the modern
dialects, differ from standard Mandarin. With this purpose in mind,
each author has provided important background information on the
Chinese language, dialect, or historical period under
investigation. The introduction provides an up-to-date description of
Sinitic languages in terms of history and geography, placing the goals
of the volume into perspective. A dialect map of China and a summary
of each chapter is also provided.
