This paper explores hermeneutical strategies applied by Zhao Qi (d. 201) in his Mengzi Zhangju (Mencius: Chapters and verses). It surveys commentarial features of the earliest extant commentary on the Mencius and discusses examples of Zhao Qi's dealing with lexicon, orthography, grammar and syntax in his word glosses and translations from Zhou Chinese into contemporary parlance, which offer a window into the development of linguistic features of the Later Han period.
