This volume is a revision and translation of Simmons' Chinese Dialect Classification -- A comparative approach to Harngjou, Old Jintarn, and Common Northern Wu. The book argues for the use of a comparative framework in dialect classification, using data drawn from extensive on-site fieldwork, gathered from living, colloquial dialects. The volume demonstrates how to develop a rigorous common phonological system with this kind of data that can be used to determine dialect relationships and outline the most workable and informative scheme of classification.

本书提出的“通语音系参照法”理论,立足于田野调查,用鲜活的共时口语材料,寻找方言间的对应关系,归纳总结通语音系,制定出一套层级分明、严谨有效的分类学检测标准,据此判定某个方言的性质和归属,探讨汉语方言分区的理论,并探索方言各自的历史以及方言间的相互关系.
