- Nowadays, with large number of underground materials discovered, the grammatical study in excavated materials has attracted more attention of scholars. This article, based on the differences of time periods and literatures, reviews the studies in China according to pronouns in excavated materials of Pre-Qin Dynasty from four aspects: pronouns study of oracle of Yin Ruins, pronouns study of inscriptions on bronzes of Zhou Dynasty, pronouns study of excavated materials of the Warring States and Qin Dynasty as well as comprehensive pronouns study of different time periods and literatures mentioned above. On this foundation, the article points out limitations of current study. Meanwhile, the article especially indicates that it will be of great theoretical significance to establish a more real origin and development of Chinese pronouns that accord with history if we thoroughly utilize excavated materials and use them to see Chinese pronouns in the diachronic development of different time periods of whole Pre-Qin Dynasty.
