In "An Anatomy of Chinese", Perry Link has made a fascinating discovery that those who are literate in Chinese are subliminally aware of, but which he is the first to make explicit in a lucid and illuminating fashion. Link brings aspects of the Chinese language innate cadences, prosody to the surface and analyzes them in such a fashion that we come to understand the structure and genius of Chinese better than ever before. It is a captivating and ingenious tale that the author spins.--Victor Mair, University of Pennsylvania"


Rhythms, conceptual metaphors, and political language convey meanings of which Chinese speakers themselves may not be aware. Link’s Anatomy of Chinese contributes to the debate over whether language shapes thought or vice versa, and its comparison of English with Chinese lends support to theories that locate the origins of language in the brain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book makes me think about my native language in a fun way 30. September 2013

I'm a native Chinese speaker, I need to translate documents between Chinese and English in my work from time to time, but I never realized how rhythms, rhymes, and metaphors have played such important roles in Chinese language. I just feel some speech/writing good or not so good unconsciously, taking the Wuyan, Qiyan for granted, now I know why and will be appreciating contents in Chinese with more awareness on rhythms, rhymes, and metaphors, trying to know more of the writer's intention behind. I will also try to use these techniques to improve my writing. In this aspect, this book gives me practical benefit.

From another perspective, I often introspect on the Chinese culture and why I have certain behaviors as a Chinese as opposed to western people that I meet, I read books on psychology, philosophy, etc. This book gives me additional food for thought in putting my introspection into context. Now I have more puzzle pieces at hand, from psychology to language, I have a better feel on what the solved puzzle will look like. Now I come closer to know why am I thinking in a certain way, why other people around me are thinking in a certain way, why I'm expressing myself in a certain way, why other people are speaking in a certain way to me, etc.

I enjoy reading this book, enjoy great examples that are taken right from authentic life of Chinese people, I enjoy this book even more because of its thought provoking quality.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What to get for the Chinese-speaker on your holiday gift list 5. November 2013
Von John J. Tkacik Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
"An Anatomy of Chinese - Rhythm, Metaphor and Politics," is a beautifully structured work with sparkling insights and tingling wit which causes me everlasting regret that I could not have it 40 years ago when I first embarked on the study of the language (. . . or maybe 35 years ago when I would have appreciated it even more than a beginner).

Professor Link's book should be required reading for any student of Chinese beyond the beginner's level and will illuminate China's rich language and literature for any non-native Chinese speaker. It is also essential reading for any analyst of current Chinese politics and/or economics.

And, of course, it is delightful to read. It will be a cherished and much-appreciated gift to that Chinese language student on your holiday gift list.
