On the Derivation of ‘di’ 底 from ‘zhě’ 者

Yang Rongxiang 杨荣祥    Peking University, China    



In Chinese linguistic circles, there are different opinions on whether the predecessor of the structure auxiliary ‘di’底 (‘de’的) is ‘zhe’ 者. We have studied the decline of ‘zhe’, and discussed the correspondence between the grammatical functions of ‘zhe’ and ‘di (de)’ and the overlap between the time of the decline of ‘zhe’ and the rise of ‘di (de)’, as well as the phonetic relationship between ‘zhe’ and ‘di (de)’. Lastly, the paper will discuss our belief that ‘di (de)’ is the new written form evolved from ‘zhe’.
