Comparative Study on South Mandarin in “Chinese-English Phonology”
LIN Lin;Fujian Normal University;
"Chinese-English Phonology"( 1874) is the dictionary edited by Samuel Williams( American sinologist). In order to clarify the nature of the south mandarin in "Chinese-English Phonology",two comparisons are made: with "Standard Pronunciation"( a local dictionary) and with "Nanjing Mandarin"( by a missionary). It is discovered that the south mandarin shows general characters of mandarin rather than Nanjing dialect.
