This article explores the received version of Huang Kan's (488-545) Lunyu Yishu and a Tang manuscript fragment that stems from it, with a view to investigating residues of the oral transmission of glosses and interpretations of the Lunyu (Analects). The discussion is based on close readings of passages that display remnants of the oral transmission of knowledge and attest to pedagogical techniques applied by Huang Kan during the Liang Dynasty (502-557) and by an unknown tutor toward the end of the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The two versions of the Lunyu Yishu are read as texts of oral utterances that bear witness to two distinct layers of recognizable oral vestiges.
