ABOUT THE LANGUAGE Mandarin courses in Portland
Old Chinese, sometimes known as “Archaic Chinese”, was the common language during the early and middle Zhou Dynasty (11th to 7th centuries B.C.), whose texts include inscriptions on bronze artifacts, the poetry of the “Shijing”, the history of the “Shujing”, and portions of the Yijing. Work on reconstructing Old Chinese started with Qing dynasty philologists.
The phonetic elements found in the majority of Chinese characters also provide hints to their Old Chinese pronunciations. Old Chinese was not wholly uninflected. It possessed a rich sound system in which aspiration or rough breathing differentiated the consonants.
The development of the spoken Chinese languages from early historical times to the present has been complex. For instance, the Min language that is centered in Fujian Province contains five subdivisions, and the so-called northern language “Bei yu” (which is called Mandarin in the West), also contains named subdivisions, such as “Yunnan hua” and “Sichuan hua”.
