Abstract:

The Tōng-Tài dialects are a branch of the Jiāng-Huái Mandarin dialects located
in the Tàizhōu region on the northern side of the Yangtze watershed in
Jiāngsū. Located just across the river from the Wú dialect region to the
south, the Tōng-Tài dialects form the southernmost edge of the vast Mandarin
dialect area to the north. The Tōng-Tài dialects are the most complex variety
of Mandarin, evidencing characteristics of great value to the understanding of
the history of Mandarin and Chinese dialect phonology. The present study,
Research in Tōng-Tài Dialect Phonology, by Gù Qián of Nánjīng University is
based on extensive fieldwork in the region and is the most comprehensive study
of this dialect group available. It begins with a brief introduction to the
dialect area’s geography, population, and history, followed by an overview of
historical studies of the Tōng-Tài dialects. The core of the book is a
comparative synchronic and diachronic study of Tōng-Tài dialect phonology,
including the initial consonants, main vowels and endings, tones, and rhyme
structure. The book also contains a comprehensive presentation of the common
Tōng-Tài phonological system, with reference to Middle Chinese and within the
context of Mandarin in general. The Appendices to the volume provide a
comprehensive inventory of Tōng-Tài morphosyllables as well as an extensive
lexicon of forms and words unique to the Tōng-Tài dialects.
