The debate on the nature of the Qieyun can be traced back to the Tang, through the Song and Qing, through the early twentieth century to contemporary research.
The present paper attempts to see the Qieyun in the light of Sui social history, social policy and political history to add slightly more weight to the second interpretation, without arguing that this can definitely resolve the matter one way or the other.
In addition, various interpretations and suggested translations of the title of the work Qieyun are suggested, on the basis that if we have a clearer idea of what the title of the work means, we might have a clearer idea of its nature.

 Notes on Middle Chinese: Fanqie and Tones
The difficulty of understanding fanqie is reflected by the fact that as recent as 1842, Chen Li 陳澧 (1810--82) still had to devote a section exclusively to the explanation of the use of fanqie in his Qieyun Kao切韻考.
The most important rhyme dictionary during this period is the Qieyun 切韻 (601 A.D.) by Lu Fayan 陸法言 (?562--?610), preserved in parts from collated works of Qing scholars until a Tang Dynasty version was discovered in Dunhuang 敦煌.
Essentially an extended version of Qieyun, and until the Dunhuang discovery, Guangyun was the representative rhyme dictionary of the Middle Chinese.

The medial glide in modern Shanxi dialects The language recorded in the Qieyun is most likely the language of the educated elite, with the compilers displaying characteristic deference to past rhyme dictionaries (cf.
Given the fact that the Qieyun system is the predecessor of modern Mandarin, syllable structure proves remarkably conservative in the development of the past fourteen centuries.
In this paper, characters are transcribed with the phonetic reconstruction of Wang (1980), in accordance with the traditional classification of Ding (1981).

For example, in the rime book Qieyun, bilabial initials [p pʰ b m] characters are shown, but there were no labiodental initials like f and v, which could be found in Jiyun.
The 601 AD Qieyun rime dictionary is our earliest fixed record of the phonology of Chinese pronunciation, albeit without the aid of phonetic letters, but entries that are indexed under a rigorous hierarchy of tone, rime, and onset.
The latter being essentially extended versions of the Qieyun, and until the Dunhuang discovery, the Guangyun was the base from which Middle Chinese was reconstructed.

Guangyun and qieyun are not dictionaries from before the 'qin'; dynasty.
I am not sure about Qieyun but while Guangyun may be a Song dynasty work, it contains words whose antiquity stretches far back, and in fact some words that were not in current usage even those days anymore.
Kangxi dictionary is not the comprehensive dictionary that everyone think it is, it is based mainly on the northern chinese language with some characters from other dialects but NOT all.

The earliest fully comprehensive categorisation of characters according to their sounds occurs in the milestone rime dictionary called Qieyun of 601AD.
This is in the Sui Dynasty, compiled by a number of scholars from northern and southern capitals of the era.
When you delve back further, no single source as useful as Qieyun exists to fix the pronunciation of Chinese characters so everything we derive is called a reconstruction.

He begins with an explanation of the Qieyun rhyming dictionary, the document compiled by Lu Fayan that, in spite of its faults, is our only useful source for the pronunciation of Middle Chinese.
Ramsey then gives a colourful presentation of the life and work of Berhard Karlgren, the Swedish scholar who, by applying the comparative method to modern Chinese dialects, worked towards a phonetic reality for the mere algebraic relationships of the Qieyun dictionary.
But this is not mere blind adulation, Ramsey does acknowledge Karlgren's faults and lists the younger scholars who followed him and improved on his theories.

It follows the more traditional organization by classifier and aside from definitions and citations, also provides the qieyun pronunciation, rhyme category and, when applicable, a list of other characters in the same word family.  Compounds are not regularly provided, though certain bound phrases (lianmianzi 聯綿字) are included.
Also a good single-volume dictionary, this one is organized by pinyin pronunciation.  Though it does not contain the historical linguistic features of the above, it has the advantage of providing entries for the most common compounds under each head character.
Contains even more characters than the above, but no compounds.  In addition to definitions and citations, rhyme category and qieyun pronunciation are provided, along with examples of the graph in earlier scripts, such as those found on oracle bones and bronze inscriptions.  This is the best dictionary for finding obscure, obsolete, or variant graphs.

 A Middle Chinese Spelling Construction Kit - B5
Baxter's notation is extremely useful and convenient because it is a fully typable transcription for the Qieyun fanqie spellings of 601 A.D. To use the data below, you will need to know the Guangyun rhyme for the word you are researching.
This probably reflects the dominant poetic practice and standard dialect of the day.
In Liu Fanping's poem, "Spring Aversion," for example, although the rhyme words are taken from three separate Qieyun rhymes, they were not distinguished in the rhyme books of Xiahou Gai (夏候該﹐韻略) or Yang Xiuzhi (陽休之﹐韻略), and they are marked "tongyong" 同用 (used in common) rhymes in the Guangyun (廣韻).

Third, it has its own internal scholarly linguistic literature in which tones are explicitly described and discussed as far back as the seventh century in the famous Qieyun pronouncing dictionary.
They used evidence from poetic rhyme, and also from the most natural point at which to break a syllable into two parts, and proposed that the syllable was composed of an Initial and a Final, and that the Final contained a medial glide, and a Rime.
The famous Qieyun dictionary was constructed in which the pronunciation of each character was denoted by two different characters, one of which began with the same Initial, and the other of which ended with the same Final.

 The Development of Chinese Language - China Guide
Only the researches of Bernard Karlgren (1889-1978) and E. Pulleyblank (* 1922) helped to reconstruct middle Chinese (Tang to Song Dynasties) and finally old and archaic Chinese.
Both used the rime dictionaries of the Tang and Song Dynasties (Qieyun and Guangyun) and rime groups of the oldest poetry book, the Shijing.
Frome these studies, we see that the final sound system of old Chinese was much more complex than today.

Middle Chinese as embodied in rhyme dictionaries (or rhyme books) were a primary aid to authors in composing rhyming poetry.

I will try not to overburden you with the manifold techincalities surrounding Middle and Old Chinese phonology and reconstruction.
Moreover, these fourteen vowels are supposed to be modified by three medials (-i-, -y-, -w-), based on the fallacious assumption that each and every rhyme category recorded in the oldest completely extant Middle Chinese rhyming dictionary (i.e., the Qieyun of 601 a.d.), would have to be reconstructed with a phonetically distinctive main vowel.
Suffice it to say, that similar problems of "unnaturalness" obscure the realm of reconstructed consonants as well.

On the other hand, all changes must be made by native speakers themselves.
