I particularly resent the imputation that my reconstructions of Late Middle Chinese based on the Yunjing and Early Middle Chinese based on the Qieyun are "mechanistic" or, as Norman put it elsewhere, the result of an "unending process of juggling and rejuggling of the same old elements, without any really new insights into the historical process" (Norman 1988: 40).
What he neglects to mention is that even at that time I had already also rejected Karlgren's yod for the reconstruction of either Early Middle Chinese (EMC) of the Qieyun or late Middle Chinese (LMC) of the rhyme tables, with abundant arguments and much marshalling of material evidence (1970, 1970-71, 1984).
