The Han shu yinyi (History of Han with Sounds and Definitions) was a Chinese text written by Han and Wei dynasty writer Su Lin.

Bits of informationEdit

The author of Han shu yinyi was Su Lin, who was from Waihuang county in Chenliu commandery. In the latter part of his career he served Cao Pi and at the time Cao Pi founded Wei in 220 Su Lin held the title Academician (bóshì 博士). He was known for being able to interpret the most difficult passages of the classics and histories.

About the text itself very little is known. Based on the title and the one citation found in Records of the Three Kingdoms (see below) it seemed to have been some kind of dictionary.
