Abstract

This paper considers an important syllabic contrast, *-i- vs. *-ji-, in the Old Chinese reconstruction system of Li Fang-Kuei (1971). It is noted that revisions to Li's system that have been proposed over the last three decades have eliminated this contrast in all but a few phonological environments. This raises the question of whether the contrast is tenable at all, and suggests that Li's system should be further revised by eliminating the contrast altogether. Such a revision would force us to consider alternative views of the Old Chinese vowel system, and of the nature of Old Chinese medial *-j-, which have been topics of debate in the field in recent years. 本文探討李方桂的上古漢語擬測裡的重要音節對比 *-i-/*-j-. 文中指出,這幾十年來因爲有學者修訂李氏的系統,這種對比只出現在少數音位環境了。 據此,本文提出,*-i-/*-ji- 的對比應該完全取消。 這樣的修訂就會涉及到ー些最近引起了很多辯論的問題,包括上古漢語介音 *-j- 性質的問題在內。
