Abstract

Reviews 585 in 2007 by the prestigious Sanlian chubanshe and received rave reviews by popular readers in China. Other similar books to introduce the pictographic nature of Chinese characters by experts and targeted at young readers in China and students of Chinese outside of China include Li Leyi, Hanzi yanbian wubai li (The evolution of Chinese characters: 500 cases) (Beijing: Beijing yuyan xueyuan chubanshe, 1993); Wang Hongyuan, Hanzi ziyuan rumen (The origins of Chinese characters) (Beijing: Huayu jiaoxue chubanshe, 1994); Shi Zhengyu, Hanzi de gushi (Stories of Chinese characters) (Beijing: Zhongguo youyi chuban gongsi, 1994). All of these books overemphasize the pictographic and ideographic nature of Chinese characters. 5. John DeFrancis, Visible Speech: The Diverse Oneness of Writing Systems (Honolulu: University of Hawai`i Press, 1989). 6. Li Xiaoding, Hanzi shihua (A history of Chinese characters) (Taipei: Lianjing chubanshe, 1977), p. 41. For the trend for script to represent sound in the development of the Chinese writing system, see also Li Xiaoding, Hanzi de qiyuan yu yanbian luncong (Collected essays on the origin and evolution of Chinese characters) (Taipei: Lianjing chubanshe, 1986).
