對於漢字的性質,歷來眾說紛紜。分歧的根源在於漢字性質的研究囿於西方的語言學概念,而忽略漢字和漢語的獨特性。西方的語言學理論認為語言是一種符號系統,文字依附於語言,只是記錄語言符號的符號。然而印歐語和漢語是兩種性質不同的語言,漢字之於漢語,並非只是“符號的符號”而已。是次報告將會透過分析符號、語言和文字的關係,揭示漢字性質研究應顧及漢語和漢字的意合性特質。

For centuries, a wide spectrum of opinions held by linguistics on the nature of Chinese characters has long existed. The main root of the difference originates from the influence of western linguistic theories which overlook the uniqueness of Chinese characters and Chinese language. Western linguistics holds the ideology that language is a system of symbol and that characters which are affiliated to language is a symbol of recording language. However, Indo-European language and Chinese language differ distinctively in terms of their nature. In Chinese language, Chinese characters are symbols not only recording language, but also recoding ideology. Through assessing the relationship among symbol, language and writing system, this seminar is to lift the veil of the parataxis in Chinese language and characters should be considered as the nature of Chinese characters.

All are welcome!
