The exact changes involving finals are somewhat complex and not always predictable, in that in many circumstances there are multiple possible outcomes. Presumably "softened stops" were actually fricatives of some sort, but it is unclear exactly what they were. For example, it could be argued that Min varieties descend from a Middle Chinese dialect where retroflex stops merged back into alveolar stops instead of merging with retroflex sibilants. The following is a basic summary; more information can be found in the table of EMC finals in Middle Chinese. There was no MC-style tone, but there was a distinction of some sort between type-A and type-B syllables. Chinese Phonology Conrad Bender Senior Paper Languages and Linguistics May 4,1988 . The appearance of Professor W.H. The result is that the yin classes have words with both aspirated and unaspirated stops, while the yang classes have only one of the two, depending on how the formerly voiced stops developed.

Scholars have attempted to reconstruct the phonology of Old Chinese from documentary evidence. Note that these reconstructions included voiceless sonorants, of which the developments have been consisted with their fortition and reflexes. Publisher: De Gruyter Mouton. For example, all modern varieties other than Min Chinese have labiodental fricatives (e.g. Retroflex stops merged into retroflex affricates. A Handbook of Old Chinese Phonology William H. Baxter. This has caused scholars to reconstruct voiced aspirates (probably realized as breathy voiced consonants) in Proto-Min, which develop into unvoiced aspirates in yang-class words. [9] Baxter pointed out xiesheng contacts between plosive series, sibilants and MC y-, and made the following reconstructions.[10]. In the following, Baxter's EMC reconstruction is compared to Pulleyblank's LMC reconstruction. Their reflexes in Middle Chinese are postulated to be: The j in parenthesis correspond to developments from a Type B syllable. Other changes occurring in most modern varieties, such as the loss of initial voiced obstruents and corresponding tone split, are areal changes that spread across existing dialects; possibly the loss of chongniu distinctions can be viewed in the same way.

While some scholars treat Middle Chinese as an actual language from which most modern forms of Chinese descend, many others view it as a highly artificial and abstract phonological system. ISBN 3-11-012324-X I. To the extent that these two systems reflect reality, they may be significantly farther apart than the 400 or so years normally given between EMC and LMC, since Baxter's EMC system was designed to harmonize with Old Chinese while Pulleyblank's LMC system was designed to harmonize with later Mandarin developments. There were on the order of six main vowels: The system of final (coda) consonants was similar to EMC; however, there was no, Tones developed from the former suffixes (post-final consonants), with MC tone 3 ("departing") developing from, Labiovelar initials were reanalyzed as a velar followed a, The main vowel developed in various complicated ways, depending on the surrounding sounds.

Furthermore, Baxter considers all the distinctions of the Qieyun to be real, while many of them are clearly anachronisms that no longer applied to any living form of the language in 600 AD. In fact, some post-LMC changes are reflected in all modern varieties, such as the loss of the chongniu distinction (between e.g. We use cookies to distinguish you from other users and to provide you with a better experience on our websites.

The specific relationship between Middle Chinese and modern tones: V- = unvoiced initial consonant In addition, in some Min varieties, some words with EMC stops are reflected with stops while others are reflected with "softened" consonants, typically voiced fricatives or approximants. In particular, Proto-Min (the reconstructed ancestor of the Min varieties) appears to have had six series of stops corresponding to the three series (unvoiced, unvoiced aspirated, voiced) of Middle Chinese.

The non-Western outlook of the terminology and concepts used in Chinese historical phonology make this field … [8] Meanwhile, it developed into /j/ in Type B syllables, which developed palatalisation in Middle Chinese. Syllables with a final stop consonant, originally toneless, get assigned to one of the four modern tones; for syllables with Middle Chinese unvoiced initials, this happens in a completely random fashion. However, allophonically they evidently split into a higher-pitched allophone in syllables with voiced initials, and a lower-pitched allophone in syllables with unvoiced initials. US$ 241.45 / DM 338.- (HB). It provides evidence for the reconstruction of a labiovelar series in Old Chinese, and, taking as a model the development of tonal oppositions from syllable finals in Vietnamese, proposes to reconstruct an Old Chinese derivational suffix *s to account for a series of tonal alternations in Middle Chinese.

To a large degree, Late Middle Chinese (LMC) of c. 1000 AD can be viewed as the direct ancestor of all Chinese varieties except Min Chinese; in other words, attempting to reconstruct the parent language of all varieties excluding Min leads no farther back than LMC. Although the writing system does not describe sounds directly, shared phonetic components of the most ancient Chinese characters are believed to link words that were pronounced similarly at that time. Handel, Zev (韓哲夫) is Associate Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle. There are some instances where a vowel is not used as a nucleus. Old Chinese phonology.

The split tones then merge back together except for Middle Chinese tone 1; hence Middle Chinese tones 1,2,3 become Mandarin tones 1,2,3,4. However, this argument cannot be made if there are distinctions in Min that do not appear in EMC (and which reflect ancient features going back to Old Chinese or – ultimately – even Proto-Sino-Tibetan, so that they cannot be explained as secondary developments), and this does indeed appear to be the case.
