Chinese place names: call for collaborative work 2

Christian Henriot's picture

This is an update on my previous post on the same topic. Thanks to the contributuons I have received from several scholars — and I wish to express my very sincere gratitude for their time and knowledge — the list of unidentified place names has shrunk considerably from 286 names to 166 now. Rather than maintinting the original list, I submit this final list  of place names. They are those to be cracked yet, which probably means they constitute hard cases.  Some names/transliterations are clearly based on Cantonese or Minnan language. The information reflects how it was presented in the source, either with the name of the province where the place was located or just as a stand alone term with no indication about the province. If you can come up with a Chinese name for any them, please add it to this discussion or contact me dircectly (Christian Henriot, Aix-Marseille University). Thanks or any input.
