comment What is the Old Chinese Pronunciation for the Character 兮?
After the Old Chinese era, writing and speaking have sort of been 'separated'. It is way more likely that 诗经 was based on the actual Old Chinese pronunciation at that time (and it is believed so) than later works on the actual Middle Chinese pronunciation.
