Suanni & Shizu Ò©óó »P ·à¤l
- There is an excellant article by Mr. Zhang Zhi-jie on the topic of
Suanni & Shizu in the Journal of China Historical Materials of
Science and Technology, Vol 22 -4 (2001-December), pp 363-367.
I don't imagine the general public will have ready access to this
journal outside of universities in China. It would be a shame not to
share the findings of Mr. Zhang in his article entitled :
"A Tentative Inquiry into the Eastward Spread of the Two Terms suanni
I have taken the liberty of posting it in the "File" section
under the file name "Suanni & Shizu".
There is an English Abstract of this article on the last page
The picture of a suanni, as illustrated in the classic text Er-ya
