Traditional Rhyme Characters

The 206 rimes of the GuangYun rimebook is represented below. It was later condensed down to 107 rimes, and further reduced to 106 rimes, as most of the distinctions had, by that time more or less, disappeared. Much later, Chinese philologists then reduced the whole set of rhymes into only 16 representative characters. The IPA pronunciations are reconstructions of the sounds which the GuangYun table is able to differentiate.

N.B. The row numbered 26 has been moved further down the table to simplify the She ( ) classifications, and also, for the order of the PingShui Rimes to be maintained.

The supplementary characters in the IPA rhymes are taken from Karlgren's Etudes sur la phonologie Chinoise. The numerals above each block of characters is for my own reference, rather and forms no part of Karlgren's work. It is hoped that by displaying the 3000+ characters from his book here, that one may find it easier using the find function of the browser, to locate the right rhyme out of the 206 GuangYun listing. The limitation is, however, that there are no indications of the tones of these characters.

The reconstructions, given in IPA are from Wang Li's book, item 32 in the references page.
