Chinese Text Project

Concordance and Index data

When passages from early texts are quoted in academic works (particularly works published in English), often the Chinese text is quoted by reference to its location in a standard printed edition or concordance, such as the Harvard-Yenching Institute Sinological Index Series (哈佛燕京學社引得), or the ICS Ancient Chinese Texts Concordance Series (逐字索引叢刊). Page, chapter, and line numbers can be used to identify the location in a text, such as "Harvard-Yenching Zhuangzi: 4/2/35" - meaning page 4, chapter 2, line 35, in this case corresponding to the text "故為是舉莛與楹,厲與西施,恢恑憰怪,道通為一。其分也,成也;其成也,毀也。凡物". However, unless the academic work includes the Chinese text or a translation of it, without access to a copy of the index or concordance, it is often difficult for the reader to determine which passage of text is referred to.

For this reason, the Chinese Text Project aims to provide the facility to locate a passage of text simply by using its concordance or index reference. For supported texts, it is possible to enter an index or concordance reference, such as the "4/2/35" in the example above, and immediately locate the corresponding passage of text. To do this, open the contents page for the text, and enter the reference in the box labelled "Find by reference", or use the corresponding box shown below on this page. Additionally, it is possible to determine the location of any passage of text in such a supported index or concordance. To do this, click on the metadata (metadata) icon to the left of the passage, and move the mouse cursor over the text to display the reference information.

Inputting the data to support indices and concordances in this way is a very time-consuming manual process. Currently, the following references are supported (please note that Mozi Yinde is in the process of being added and currently only contains volumes 1 through 10):
