The great Vindications

Chinese language was accused as the worst language in the world by both the Chinese philologists and the Western sinologists. Yet, at the time of my initial work on “Chinese etymology”, I did not know about the above fact. After I learnt that fact, I have written some weekly newsletters on the issue, and they were posted in this blog.

Two months ago, I met a few Chinese at LinkedIn while they were discussing the book  紅樓夢. I found out that that book was also wronged for the past 200 years. Worst yet, those who wrong that book are the same people who wrong the Chinese written system. Thus, I have decided to write a book to vindicate these two (Chinese language and 紅樓夢). Now, the first draft of this book is done and is available via the links provided. The first two parts of the book are written in Chinese. The part three is written in English.
