Abstract

The invention of fǎnqiè反切 is an important event in Chinese phonology. Two possible sources, the indigenous tradition and the outside influence, are discussed. Arguments are put forward to support the thesis that fǎnqiè was invented under the influence of Indian script. The parallel between fǎnqiè and the spelling method of Kharoṣṭhī script is new evidence strengthening the thesis. By studying the specifics of fǎnqiè's orgin, this paper aims to fill a gap in the history of Chinese linguistics. 反切的发明是研究汉语音韵的一件大事。本文讨论了本土传统及外来影响两种看法,认为后者直接促成了反切的发明。重要的佐证来自比较印度 Kharosathi 文字的拼音方法与反切的切音原则;两者相类之处是外来影响说的有力支持。经由反切源起的探讨本文希望把中国语言学史上的一段空缺填补起来。
