520    "In the more than 3,000 years since its invention, the 
       Chinese script has been adapted many times to write 
       languages other than Chinese, including Korean, Vietnamese,
       Japanese, and Zhuang. In Sinography: Cross-linguistic 
       Perspectives of the Borrowing and Adaptation of the 
       Chinese Script, Zev Handel provides a comprehensive 
       analysis of how the structural features of these languages
       constrained and motivated methods of script adaptation. 
       This comparative study reveals the universal principles at
       work in the borrowing of logographic scripts. By analyzing
       and explaining these principles, Handel advances our 
       understanding of how early writing systems have functioned
       and spread, providing a new framework that can be applied 
       to the history of scripts beyond East Asia, such as 
       Sumerian and Akkadian cuneiform"--|cProvided by publisher
