Abstract:

This comprehensive account of the history of Chinese lexicography is the
first book on the subject to be published in English. It traces the
development of Chinese lexicography over three millennia, from the Zhou
Dynasty (1046 BC-256 BC) to the Qing Dynasty (1616-1911). Revealing how the
emergence of lexicographical culture in ancient China was linked to the
teaching of ancient characters, it describes the subsequent development of
primers, thesauruses, and dictionaries of all major types, including those
of dialects and technical terms. These works originated and appeared in
ancient China, predating their western counterparts by hundreds of years:
and in one form or another most of them remain in use today.

Throughout their account the authors show how changes in the organization,
content, use and researches of Chinese lexicographical works reflected
broader social and political developments. This book not only makes an
important and original contribution to the history of Chinese lexicography
and the social and cultural history of China but also provides illuminating
insights into world lexicography and new forms of comparative researches in
lexicography in the global context.
