During the past eighty years the study of Chinese historical phonology has focused on the Middle Chinese (ca. A.D. 600) and Old Chinese (ca. 1000 B.C.) periods. Work on the intervening span of over 1000 years has been less intense, due in great part to the paucity and relative inaccessibility of relevant data. Within this long interval the first and second centuries A.D., corresponding to the ascendancy of the Eastern Han dynasty, promise to be important for future research.
