Japanisch – Kundoku – Chinesisch
The article explores how the concepts of language and translation can be reconceptualized and opened up for historical enquiry through the lens of Kundoku, a Japanese textual practice midway between annotation and translation. It argues that in Early Modern Japan, Kundoku sustained a continuum between “Chinese” and “Japanese” lingual practices. Western concepts of language and translation, which are often held to be universally applicable, were in fact alien to the thought and practice of Japanese elites. They gained currency only after a period of disentangling and constructing separate “Japanese” and “Chinese” languages through the marginalization of Kundoku in the late nineteenth century.
