Old Chinese

A New Reconstruction

William H. Baxter and Laurent Sagart

  • The most up-to-date reconstruction of Old Chinese available
  • Draws on important newly-available evidence: better documentation of Chinese dialects that preserve archaic features; better documentation of languages with very early loanwords from Chinese; and a flood of Chinese manuscripts from the first millennium BCE, recently excavated or discovered
