    Seung-Yong Moon | 2014, (35) | pp.35~58 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The Chinese rhetoric started in The Shang Dynasty. The Shang Dynasty started to write their thoughts. The Chinese invented the writing system known as the inscriptions on bones and tortoise carapaces. The priests using the inscriptions divined what would happen the future. The inscriptions were not the vehicle of human thought, were the supreme authority of the Lord on High. It came from respect of all things in nature, and was imitated the nature and the principle of nature. The Western Zhou Dynasty tried to deny The Shang Dynasty’s theocratic rule. It means the start of humanities times in ancient China. Through making a lecture and writing on their thought, ‘all philosophers and scholars’ were to awaken the true meaning of all things in the universe. It was the beginning of rhetoric in the ancient China. The rhetorical origin took rise in 『Zhouyi』said “use a flowery style, must be in the right frame of mind.(修辭立其誠)”. They generally used water as a rhetorical device, and the source of all things in the universe. For example, Confucius said “Some people like mountains while others like water.(樂山樂水)”, Lao-tzu said “Water`s virtue is the highest goodness.(上善若水)”. They utilized the chief element of water. The Period of Wei, Jin and Northern & Southern Dynasties was a kind of the Renaissance period in Chinese art and literature. Especially Luji’s 『Wenfu』, Liuxie`s 『The literary mind and the craving of dragons』and Zhongrong`s 『Shipin』made many meaningful arguments about shaping and developing of rhetorical device, and the correlation of natural object during the ancient China. The nature and the principle of nature played an important role on the shaping and developing of the Chinese rhetoric.

    Rethinking on Subcategories of “Ba” Construction

    郭圣林 | 2014, (35) | pp.131~150 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    On the basis of previous research, this paper divided “Ba” construction into 13 subcategories according to strict logic programs, which are having verbs or not, verbs being idioms or not, having several verbs or not, a single verb having no additional ingredients in front of and behind itself or not, and so on.The 13 subcategories are无动式、熟语式、复谓式、唯动式、状动式、动得式、动结式、动趋式、动副式、动介式、动宾式、动量式、动体式. As for naming the 13 subcategories, this paper haven’t adopted using Arabic numerals like 1, 2, 3 as Beijing Language Institute Sentence Type Research Group (1989) and Lv Wenhua (1994)did, and formula “v p = v r” as Cui Xiliang (1995) did, and codes like Ⅰa、Ⅰb as Xiao Xiqiang etc. (2009) did. We mainly followed Fan Xiao (2001). The 13 categories of “Ba” construction are fewer than Lv Wenhua (1994), more than Beijing Language Institute Sentence Type Research Group (1989), Cui Xiliang (1995), Fan Xiao(2001), Xiao Xiqiang etc.(2009). 9 out of the 13 categories have the same names as Fan Xiao (2001). Except adding 无动式、熟语式、复谓式,we changed Fan Xiao(2001)‘光杆动词把字句’(bare-verb “Ba” construction)into ‘唯动式把字句’(one-verb-predicate “Ba” construction )to make the name cleaner and be consistent with the others on the syllable to achieve a consistent effect. The references of “Ba” construction naming by Arabic numerals or Roman alphabet are difficult to memory, and by a formula are not simple enough. The best choice of naming “Ba” construction is using a Chinese phrase, which can have a brief form,and a clear reference.We would like to make such a classification and naming, mainly for the convenience of analysis of corpora and reading and writing. Our classification follows the strict logical principles, and the standards are very clear. According to our steps, any “Ba” construction appearing in a corpus can be easily classified into a proper subcategory.

    Research On the Current Deconstruction Phenomenon of Chinese Words Meaning

    魏慧萍 | 2014, (35) | pp.151~171 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In current Chinese, the changes of ideas caused by the social reality and the changes of life caused by new media revolution have been intertwined, and been presented by a rich deconstruction phenomenon occurred in the field of words meaning. Deconstruction means that the original meaning of the concept is broken, the old meaning scope is deconstructed gradually ( not disappear) and the new meaning is accumulated continuously. Social mainstream thought, pop culture, the factors from people(as language’s host)and language development are leading to the meaning’s deconstruction. The current deconstruction of Chinese words meaning has two kinds of forms: explicit form and intrinsic form. It can come from the rationale of logical reasoning, language game, self-mockery or ridicule others, court jester as well. Meaning’s deconstruction doesn’t mean simple destruction or subversion, but aims at meaningful reconstruction. In fact, the significance of deconstruction and reconstruction are actually two aspects of the same phenomenon. During the past decade, under the leadership of Chinese civil power, a lot of deconstructions of the words meaning appeared in Chinese language, which shows that common people intend to grasp the right to speak more. We can see that it also currently affected China’s mainstream thought or trend. This observation comes from the perspective of deconstruction and towards the newest development of the Chinese words meaning, the purpose is to research on the trends of living Chinese language better in our new media age.

    Abstract PDF
    The poetic language is an imagerial and intentional language, which is different from the legal language, the everyday language and the literary language, especially in terms of vocabulary. With a close examination of The First 200 Words of the Modern Poetry in comparison with The First 200 Words of the Legal Language, The First 200 Words of the Everyday Language, and The First 200 Words of the Literary Language, the author argues that: 1) Because the poetic language and the legal language belong to different registers, the two languages differ significantly in their selection of vocabulary, therefore we should put more efforts into the study of register; 2) The poetic language is constructed on the basis of the  everyday language, on account of the shared vocabulary of the poetic language and the everyday language; 3) The poetic language is most closely related to the literary language. The poetic language transcends the literary language, and should be distinct from the literary language.

    As an important literary province across China, Jiangsu novels in recent years have made rapid development. Not only the number of works is very large, and high-quality works are also increasing. 2013 is the harvest year of Jiangsu novels. In this year, Jiangsu writers published nearly one hundred novels. Overall, whether they choose to take on the theme of the story, or digging in bold ideological theme, whether in the form of innovative structure, or a breakthrough in terms of characterization, have a distinctive performance. Throughout Jiangsu novel creation in 2013, we find them in the selection layout, almost formed from anc ient times to the present one, from the historical continuity of the subject matter to the realsystem, clearly showing broad and lofty conception of Jiangsu writers’ horizon. We are excited that Jiangsu novels’ narrative passion for contemporary life and the spirit of exploration is quite prominent. While some works focus on the rediscovery of history, more works comprehensive in-depth contemporary life, or in the intertwined aesthetic space and time between the history and reality, to write the changing times and complex landscape of contemporary culture. From the novel types of view, marriage fiction, urban fiction, local novels, officialdom novels, youth writing, children’s literature, and even popular literature, fiction network, etc., are very well developed, clearly showing a high degree of enthusiasm and a strong aesthetic ideas of Jiangsu Writers’ creativity. Jiangsu novel also exhibit a unique aesthetic qualities. They are good at using the profound implication of imagery or imagery group to form the story of the process, but also more inclined to condense some life experience to expand the complex relationship between the characters. Thus, many of the works are difficult to be analyzed from the ordinary type of framework. Many works have already overrun certain stylistic boundaries and type of mode, and different from the general realism, or romanticism, or other writing methods, but showed a spirit of individualism, in order to achieve a strong combination of aesthetics and exploration of human nature.

    김혜정 | 2014, (35) | pp.413~442 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Ming Tang was originally the place for emperors in ancient China to perform state affairs and various memorial services. It was developed under strict standards reflecting tradition. It was not only a site praying for prosperity and perpetuation of country and descendants, but also a place for an emperor to reside at, allocating the year’s state affairs to feudal lords. In the background of creation of Ming Tang, there was a purpose to practice efficient politics by harmonizing the year’s energy of Yin Yang and the seasonal divisions, and by looking into geological characteristics. In Chinese classic literatures, Ming Tang is recorded deeply related to Chinese Shu Shu(術數), and then, it is Feng Shui which makes up for classic field of Chinese Shu Su. The records on Ming Tang are shown without exception in literatures representative of Feng Shui. In Feng Shui, Ming Tang, in connection with Qi, Yin Yang, mountain and water, water flow, earth color and flow of Qi, is regarded as an important criterion to judge which is an auspicious site. While Ming Tang was recorded as a constituent of auspicious site in Feng Shui literatures, it was regarded as auspicious site itself beyond a constituent of auspicious site in Chronicle Record of the Chosen Dynasty. At first, those who made use of Ming Tang were limited only to emperors, but it got to mean a constituent of auspicious site through widening recognition of Feng Shui, and it got generally used by people of every class. By the way, geological application of nature, succession of tradition, a certain rule and condition and so on are still kept up in common, but as time goes by, they are getting more minutely divided. The purpose of Ming Tang has always been for future prosperity, regardless of when it meant the essential place for state affairs, a constituent of auspicious site or the auspicious site itself.

    The Conflict and Compromise of Confucianism and Buddhism: Korea’s and Taiwan’s Chinese Buddhism in Intercultural Communication

    Park, Young-Hwan | 2014, (35) | pp.443~472 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    I have been thinking of the problem of Korea and Taiwan’s cultural difference ever since I studied abroad in Taiwan for the first time more than 20 years ago. Specific for, how did Taiwan’s Buddhism become flourishing? What’s the difference between Korean society’s and Taiwan society’s Confucian values? Is it connected with Korean society’s exclusiveness and Taiwan society’s inclusiveness? These small macro-problems recurred to me from time to time. And I have tried to discuss on the problems I have been thinking about on the base of these factual situations in these two years. My shallow opinion of The Charm and Influence Enacted by Buddhism in Contemporary Society of Taiwan: Together With Its Similarities and differences with Korean Buddhism had been delivered at the International Symposium of the Religious Retrospect and Prospect at the One Hundred Anniversary of the Founding of ROC which was hosted by Taiwan Association for Religious Studies and held in Academia Sinica on May 14th, 2011. And also in August, 2012 I delivered the Religious thoughts of Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism and Taiwan Society at the 32nd International Symposium on Chinese Studies that hosted by Korean Association of Chinese Studies and held at Yonsei University in Korea. The reason of the big differences between Taiwan’s and Korea’s Chinese Buddhism has been further discussed on the base of existing studies in this essay. This is a very interesting and important subject. The textual research has been made from four aspects which include the analysis of Taiwan Buddhism and Korean Buddhism’s developing process from the view point of Confucianism and Buddhism’s conflict and compromise, what actually are the reason of Taiwan Chinese Buddhism’s prosperity, and the research of Chinese Buddhism’s developing process in Korea. Firstly, the different religious values between Korean scholar-officials and Ming dynasty’s officials is analyzed through the 16th century’s cultural records of Fujian Min district which is one root of Taiwan’s culture in order to realize that Ming dynasty’s officials held inclusive religious value that is a mélange of Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism; but Korean officials held exclusive religious values that is the overwhelming Confucianism and the attack on heresies. Secondly, the value that Confucianism occupies the central position and Buddhism plays subsidiary role was still kept on the base of the combination of Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism in Taiwan district during the late Ming and early Qing periods; However, in Korean Dynasty not only the value of Neo-Confucianism was kept from the beginning to the end, but also the views that were different from Neo-Confucianism were always intolerant. Thirdly, the consciousness of rebelling against tradition was appeared in Taiwan’s Buddhist circle during the period of Japanese occupation which not only made firm position for women’s independence, but also raised Buddhism’s position and narrowed down the distance between Confucian scholars and monks; During this period although the modern trend of establishing new educational institutions was appeared in Korean Buddhist circle, Korean Buddhism was essentially dependent on Japanese Buddhism as to seek Korean Buddhism’s revival and development. As this dependence became stronger and stronger, the opposition and dispute between anti-national Japanolatry “Educational Institute”’s mainstream power and “General Affairs Office”’s nonofficeholding power which emphasized nationality and independence was appeared. Finally, owing to Taiwan culture and scholar thought’s pluralism, extremely conservative values and traditions of Neo-Confucianism weaker and weaker gradually so as to make room for the contemporary development of Taiwan’s modern Buddhism. But in Korea, the centralized Buddhist system and thought that started from the Joseon dynasty and based on Confucianism’s great unity ideology had been continued and caused the phenomenon which was unfavorable for Buddhist development. In light of this, this kind of centralized system has comparatively many negative factors to affect Korean Buddhism’s overall development and is not fit for the contemporary pluralistic age. As for pluralism and centralization, this is not only a very interesting phenomenon, but also the biggest advantage to Taiwan society and the biggest shortage to Korean society.

    An Analysis of the history behind Chinese mythology from the Perspective of Totemism

    付希亮 , Changwon Choi | 2014, (35) | pp.473~487 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The five emperors’ times that appeared in Sima Qian’s HistoricalRecordsㆍBiographic Sketches of Five Emperors is equivalent to Longshan culture era in archaeology. The most difficult part of the research in this era lies in the lack of historical data. Previous researchers tend to exclude myths, legends and historical documents that contain mythological quality from research field, which makes the study on this period of history at a standstill. On the basis of totemism theory of anthropology, present researchers should break through the bondage of traditional historiography concepts, interpret mythological materials, explore its historical reality, construct historical system of five emperors, and then fulfill the tracing of Chinese Civilization origin.
