Title: Sinitic Grammar: Synchronic and Diachronic Perspectives
Edited By: Hilary Chappell
Description:

This book melds 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. Each essay investigates a Chinese language, dialect, or historical period, and the introduction describes the history and geography of Sinitic languages.
