The Cam­bridge Hand­book of Chi­nese Lin­guis­tics
BuchcoverThe lin­guis­tic study of Chi­nese, with its rich mor­pho­log­i­cal, syn­tac­tic and prosodic/tonal struc­tures, its com­plex writ­ing sys­tem, and its diverse socio-his­tor­i­cal back­ground, is already a long-estab­lished and vast research area. With con­tri­bu­tions from inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned experts in the field, this Hand­book pro­vides a state-of-the-art sur­vey of the cen­tral issues in Chi­nese lin­guis­tics. Chap­ters are divid­ed into four the­mat­ic areas: writ­ing sys­tems and the neu­ro-cog­ni­tive pro­cess­ing of Chi­nese, mor­pho-lex­i­cal struc­tures, pho­net­ic and phono­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics, and issues in syn­tax, seman­tics, prag­mat­ics, and dis­course. By fol­low­ing a con­text-dri­ven approach, it shows how the­o­ret­i­cal issues in Chi­nese lin­guis­tics can be resolved with empir­i­cal evi­dence and argu­men­ta­tion, and pro­vides a range of dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives. Its dialec­ti­cal design sets a state-of-the-art bench­mark for research in a wide range of inter­dis­ci­pli­nary and cross-lin­gual stud­ies involv­ing the Chi­nese lan­guage. It is an essen­tial resource for stu­dents and researchers wish­ing to explore the fas­ci­nat­ing field of Chi­nese lin­guis­tics.

From Chi­nese cos­mol­o­gy to Eng­lish Roman­ti­cism: the intri­cate jour­ney of a monis­tic idea
BuchcoverA cul­tur­al­ly sen­si­tive and reward­ing new under­stand­ing of the cross-cul­tur­al inter­ac­tion between Chi­na and Europe.
In this impor­tant new work author Yu Liu argues that, con­fined by a nar­row Eng­lish and Euro­pean con­cep­tu­al frame­work, schol­ars have so far obscured the rad­i­cal inno­va­tion and rev­o­lu­tion­ary impli­ca­tion of Samuel Tay­lor Coleridge and William Wordsworth’s monis­tic phi­los­o­phy. Liu’s inno­v­a­tive intel­lec­tu­al his­to­ry traces the organ­ic west­ward move­ment of the Chi­nese con­cept of tian­ren heyi, or humanity’s uni­ty with heav­en. This monis­tic idea enters the Euro­pean imag­i­nary through Jesuit mis­sion­ary Mat­teo Ricci’s under­stand­ing of Chi­nese cul­ture, trav­els through Spinoza’s iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of God with nature, becomes ingrained in eigh­teenth-cen­tu­ry Eng­lish thought via the land­scap­ing the­o­ry and prac­tice of William Kent and Horace Wal­pole, and emerges in the poet­ry and thought of Coleridge and Wordsworth. In addi­tion to pre­sent­ing a sig­nif­i­cant­ly dif­fer­ent read­ing of the two Eng­lish poets, Liu con­tributes to schol­ar­ship about Eng­lish lit­er­ary his­to­ry, his­to­ry of Euro­pean phi­los­o­phy and reli­gion, Eng­lish gar­den his­to­ry, and cross-cul­tur­al inter­ac­tions between Chi­na and Europe in the six­teenth, sev­en­teenth, and eigh­teenth cen­turies.
