Abstract:

Handwritten in the seventeenth century, the "Arte de la lengua chio chiu" is
the oldest extant grammar of the Chinese vernacular known as Southern Min
or Hokkien, and a spectacular source text for present-day linguistics. Its
author, a Spanish Dominican missionary, worked among the Chinese settlers
in Manila or "Sangleys". The first part of "The Language of the Sangleys" is
an in-depth analysis of the "Arte" in its historical, social and linguistic
contexts. The second part offers an annotated transcript and translation of
the "Arte", including facsimiles of the original manuscript, making this study
eminently fit for classroom use. Combining sophisticated theory and method
with meticulous philology, "The Language of the Sangleys" presents a
fascinating, new chapter in the history of Chinese and general linguistics.

Readership:

-Linguists interested in missionary linguistics, history of linguistics, historical
sociolinguistics, Chinese dialectology, historical phonology of Hokkien. -
Sinologists interested in the history of Chinese language studies by
Westerners, Chinese-Western cultural exchanges.
