ニュース

Main Features

  • The Thesaurus Linguae Sericae (TLS) is designed as as a collaborative forum for discussion on the close reading of Chinese texts.
  • TLS provides a corpus of classical Chinese texts wherever possible with interlinear translations.
  • TLS links the texts incorporated with an analytic dictionary of the Chinese language.
  • TLS pays special attention to historical keywords.
  • TLS works towards a cross-cultural study of conceptual history.
  • TLS compiles a detailed synonym dictionary of Chinese.
  • TLS systematically organises the Chinese vocabulary in taxonomic hierarchies of synonym groups.
  • TLS develops a system of syntactic categories for the analysis of Chinese texts.
  • TLS develops a system of rhetorical devices for the analysis of Chinese texts.
  • TLS deploys a system of standard semantic relations, aiming to define the Chinese conceptual space as a relational space.
  • TLS seeks to make available up-to-date databases on historical phonology and the history of Chinese characters.

Cautionary Notes

  • This database is no more than an on-line construction site.
  • Due to lack of funding, very little in TLS has so far been proofread or double-checked. Caveat lector!
  • TLS encourages suggestions for improvement at the bottom of every page.
