Title: Studies on the Menggu Ziyun
Written By: Zhongwei Shen
URL: http://www.ling.sinica.edu.tw/english/v7-2-review.asp-v_id=33.htm
Series Title: Language and Linguistics Monograph Series A-16
Description:

The Menggu Ziyun 蒙古字韻 (MGZY) is a phonological work produced during the
Yuan dynasty (A.D. 1279-1368). Its primary significance is that for the
first time Chinese was systematically transcribed into an alphabetic
system, the hP'ags-pa script, which enables scholars to study the Chinese
phonology of the 13th century with greater precision. The present book is
divided into two major sections after the introduction. The first section
provides analyses of the hP'ags-pa script, the orthographic principles of
the script, and various materials contained in the MGZY. The second part
analyzes the phonology of the MGZY from a historical perspective. The
Studies on the Menggu Ziyun will be of special interest to Chinese
historical phonologists in particular and scholars concerned with the
history and culture of China during the Yuan period in general.
