Chinese philology is essential for researchers who would like to further their studies in various disciplines, such as etymology, phonology, text-based semantics, syntax and dialectology. Chinese philology has been taught as a compulsory core module in most Chinese departments at universities in mainland China and Taiwan. The establishment for a research group for Chinese philology at the Department will therefore help both our undergraduate and graduate students strengthen their knowledge of the field.
One goal of the research group is to put the findings of the research projects into applied use, such as compilation of dictionaries and lexicography, development and improvement of primary and secondary Chinese textbook contents, etc. The proposed research group will aim to carry out projects that are in line with the Department's focus on the professional Chinese curriculum.
The establishment of the group will help raise the visibility of the Department's unique strength in Chinese philology research and our distinguished programs in Chinese philology and linguistics.
