Chapter 23 Mawangdui B version

Recommended Posts

All chapters of the Mawangdui B Dao De Jing are divided into sentences according to the number of characters.

The number of characters structure is mirrored around the single character er2 in the middle of the chapter 23.

The character yu2 in the sixth sentence is grammatical marking the verb of the sentence as dative.

The character zhi1 at the end is grammatical changing the preceeding character shi1 into a verb.
