The Features of Old Southern Chinese
- 人文学院－已发表论文 
笔者主张“南方汉语非‘汉’”说；反对南方汉语方言形成的古典进化论“单线演进说”。南方文化区包括几个区域性的文化，构成一个南方文化交互作用圈。这是南方汉语形成的基础。南方汉语的形成既非完全是“土生土长”，也绝非完全是“北方迁入”。这是一个多元结构体，是南北族群经过长期的语言文化的互动过程的结果。In viewing the development of linguistics in China it can be seen that many scholars persist in the traditional theory of classica l evolution. According to this theory, the cultural features of southern Chinese dialects and the territorial diversity result from the southward migration of t he Northern Hans. I don't agree with this opinion but hold that the key elements of the development of Han culture character in South China are the interaction of ethic groups and tradition of regional cultures.
