Colophon title also in Pinyin: Gu ci bian. Includes bibliographical references and index.
"Gucibian 古辭辨 ... Examines the sets of lexemes (usually characters) belonging to a particular area of meaning or semantic field. This method is especially effective for Classical Chinese, in which characters were used interchangeably, so that the conventional approach of defining individual words in isolation is less helpful. The success of the Gucibian also derives from its concentration on a specific lexicon (3,800 of the most frequently used characters based on the word counts in the concordances to 19 of the Han and pre-Qin texts) ....
