MENG Dehong (BFSU), „对比语义视角下的汉字教学 Teaching Chinese Characters from the Perspective of Contrastive Semantics“
7. November 2020, 12:00 - 14:30
Key points of the lecture
The Chinese character 笔 bǐ means „there are hairs under the bamboo tube”, whilst the English word “pen“ derives from the Latin word for “feather“; the character “著“ zhù suggests that the Chinese used to write down characters on “grass“, whilst the English word “paper“ derives directly from the Latin term “papyrus“; the character “书契“ shūqì records the idea of “carving“, and at the same time, the etymology of the English word “write“ reveals its original meaning of “carving“ as well… Apparently, the human writing system is full of consistencies If those consistencies were to be revealed and explained
adequately, they should serve as a useful resource for learners of Chinese as a foreign language to further enhance the ability of character self studying and the acquisition of Chinese characters in general. This lecture will explain some key thoughts on teaching Chinese characters in an Indo European environment from the perspective of comparative semantics. By means of concrete examples, we will connect the common grounds of the human writing systems, and show how to effectively promote students’ interest, strengthen their learning motivation and, hence, improve their study results
