Words Characteristics of Tang’ Epitaph
Abstract: The total number of words that we have collected in the text of Tang Dynasty epitaphs is four million or so. Tang’s epitaphs contain abundant cultural vocabularies, among which some are rooted from the former dynasties and some are formed in Tang Dynasty, while others are produced previously and then transferred or evolved in Tang Dynasty. This paper aims at researching Tang’ epitaph expressions, hoping to summarizing their characteristics.
