Presented By: Department of Linguistics

HistLing Discussion Group

Gou Wu, Bill Baxter, and Mathew Kramer

This week's topic is the historical phonology of Chinese loanwords in neighboring languages. The three presenters will be Gou Wu on Sino-Korean, Bill Baxter on Sino-Vietnamese, and Mathew Kramer on Sino-Japanese. They'll be showing how these are related to Middle Chinese (from which they were borrowed) and to Mandarin and Cantonese.

HistLing is devoted to discussions of language change. Group members include interested faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates from a wide variety of U-M departments -- Linguistics, Anthropology, Asian Languages and Cultures, Classics, Germanic Languages, Near Eastern Studies, Romance Languages, Slavic Languages - and from two nearby universities, Eastern Michigan (Ypsilanti) and Wayne State (Detroit).

Some meetings feature faculty or student presentations; other meetings have an announced topic for discussion and a volunteer moderator, but no formal presentation.

All meetings will be held virtually this semester. For more information, please email Sally Thomason (
