Abstract:

The study examines the origins of the "literary revolution" proclaimed in
1917 which laid the foundation for the replacement of the classical
language (wenyan) by the vernacular (baihua) as China's national language
and medium of national literature. A unique multifaceted approach is used
to explain the political significance of the classical/vernacular divide
(diglossia) against the backdrop of social change that followed the
Sino-Japanese War of 1894-5. Seeing education as the central battleground
for all debates on language, the study in six thoroughly documented
chapters investigates the language policy of the Qing and Republican
governments, vernacular journalism of the revolutionaries, the activities
of urban script reformers, the linguistic thought of national essence
advocates, and the emergence of a scholarly interest in the vernacular in
academic circles.
