Pulleyblank, "Lexicon of reconstructed pronunciation," in Early Middle Chinese, Late Middle Chinese, and Early Mandarin, UBC press, 1991.
Edwin Pulleyblank, Middle Chinese: A Study in Historical Phonology, UBC Press, 2011.
(46) The difficulty of identifying initials, which provided a raison d'etre for Lishi yinjian, did not in LT's mind stem from discrepancies between Middle Chinese pronunciation and character readings current in his day.
Each table contained one out of forty-four rhyme groups and listed the four Middle Chinese tones on the horizontal axis.
Lastly we note that the volume references the author's spoken recordings of the "pronunciation" of Old Chinese, Middle Chinese, and other versions of premodern Chinese, on the companion website (corresponding to text provided on pages 42, 68, and 79).
Moreover, reconstructing an *n as the root initial of [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] solves an additional problem: one character in which [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] occurs as phonetic, [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 'to smile', has initial sy- in Middle Chinese; but while Middle Chinese sy- never derives from Old Chinese s-, it is the regular outcome of Old Chinese [.sup.b]bn-.
The reconstruction of the rhyme as -ij by Baxter follows from two facts: first, the Middle Chinese pronunciation is sej, where -ej is a regular outcome of Old Chinese -ij; and second, from the fact that in the Book of Odes [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] rhymes (once) with [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], O.C.
According to this hypothesis, in the transition from Old to Early Middle Chinese, which must have taken place during Han times when the Middle Chinese tonal system was taking shape (Haudricourt 1954a, b, Pulleyblank 1962, 1964, 1973, 1978), a high central vowel -i- was inserted after the onset in Type B syllables, sometimes fronting to -i- or rounding to -u- depending on the environment (Pulleyblank 1984, 1994).
482) begins by miscopying Karlgren's reconstructions for these two forms (he has [siwer.sup.*] incorrectly for [siwar.sup.*], and [tniwen.sup.*] incorrectly for [iniwan.sup.*]); he goes on to complain of a lack of "vollkommene Paronomasie" in these, his own incorrect forms; and then shifts the discussion to Pulleyblank's Middle Chinese reconstructions, [cwi.sup.*]' "water" and [tcwin.sup.*]' "level," discovering in the process that "die Lautung des Lemmas vollkommen in derjenigen des Definiens enthalten ist"!
A good example of a Han transcription that shows both Old Chinese *r > Middle Chinese *1 and Modern Chinese l-, corresponding to foreign -r-, and Old Chinese *1 > Middle Chinese *j- corresponding to foreign -/- is the name Wuyishanli EMC jik sein lia, long accepted as equivalent to the name Alexandria (not the great metropolis in Egypt but one of the other cities by this name founded by Alexander in present Afghanistan).
His phonetic interpretation of this framework is, however, based on his guesses as to how foreign sounds in languages as dead as Middle Chinese, even though written in alphabetic scripts, would have sounded to a Chinese ear, or vice versa, without any clearly articulated theory as to the internal organization of the Chinese phonological system at the relevant time and place.
In the Fujian dialects, Jerry Norman (1976) discovered that some features of the language did not go back to Middle Chinese cognates and postulated a substratum language from the Austroasiatic family.
