China (中國 em chinês tradicional, 中国 em chinês simplificado, Zhōngguó no sistema pinyin e Chung-kuo no sistema Wade-Giles)[1] é uma antiga unidade histórica, cultural e geográfica situada na parte continental do leste da Ásia, incluindo algumas ilhas que desde 1949 foram divididas entre a República Popular da China (que inclui a China continental, Hong Kong e Macau) e a República da China (que inclui Taiwan e algumas ilhas da província de Fujian). A palavra China costuma referir-se a regiões que, em termos mais específicos não fazem parte dela, como é o caso da Manchúria, da Mongólia Interior, o Tibete e Xinjiang (ver mapa das divisões da China). Nos meios de comunicação ocidentais, China refere-se, normalmente, à República Popular da China, enquanto que Taiwan se refere à República da China. Muitas vezes, em termos informais, especialmente entre chineses e ingleses (no contexto do mundo dos negócios), a Grande região da China (大中华地區) refere-se ao sentido mais lato, tal como foi apresentado no parágrafo anterior. Na sua história, as capitais da China situavam-se, essencialmente, no leste. As quatro capitais mais citadas são Nanquim (Nanjing), Pequim (Beijing), Xian, e Luoyang. As línguas oficiais foram mudando ao longo da sua extensa história, (incluindo línguas entretanto desaparecidas), incluindo o mongol, o manchu e os vários dialetos do chinês, entre os quais o mandarim (em chinês Hanyu, pronunciado haN ü, ou seja, /h/ como hat, em inglês, e /ü/ como o som do "u" francês) e o cantonês. A palavra portuguesa "China", bem como o prefixo associado, "sino-", derivam, provavelmente, de Qin (pronúncia "tchim", onde o "q" é pronunciado como um alveopalatal, como o "ch" na palavra inglesa chest). Há quem defenda, no entanto, que China derive da palavra chinesa para chá (igual à palavra em português que, aliás, tem a sua origem etimológica no próprio mandarim) ou, mesmo, de "seda" (note-se, em jeito de nota de rodapé, que é vulgar a associação entre a palavra china e os produtos que têm aí a sua origem: china, em português, também pode significar porcelana) . Qualquer que seja, contudo, a origem da palavra "China" (que é uma palavra europeia, não existindo em qualquer das línguas sino-tibetanas) foi-se perdendo à medida que era filtrada pelos vários povos atravessados pela Rota da Seda, que fazia a primeira ligação histórica estável entre esta região asiática e a Europa.China (traditional Chinese: 中國; simplified Chinese: 中国; Tongyong Pinyin: Jhongguó; Hanyu Pinyin: Zhōngguó (help·info); Wade-Giles (Mandarin): Chung¹kuo²) is a cultural region, an ancient civilization, and, depending on perspective, a national or multinational entity extending over a large area in East Asia. China has one of the world's oldest people and continuous civilizations, consisting of states and cultures dating back more than six millennia. It has the world's longest continuously used written language system, and is the source of many major inventions, such as what the British scholar and biochemist Joseph Needham called the "four great inventions of Ancient China": paper, the compass, gunpowder, and printing. Historically, China's cultural sphere has extended across East Asia as a whole, with Chinese religion, customs, and writing systems being adopted to varying degrees by neighbors such as Japan, Korea and Vietnam. The last Chinese Civil War has resulted in two political entities using the name China: * the People's Republic of China (PRC), commonly known as China, has control over mainland China, and the largely self-governing territories of Hong Kong (since 1997) and Macau (since 1999). * the Republic of China (ROC), commonly known as Taiwan, has control over the islands of Taiwan, Pescadores, Kinmen, and Matsu.English and many other languages use various forms of the name "China" and the prefix "Sino-" or "Sin-". These forms are thought to derive from the name of the Qin Dynasty that first unified the country (221206 BCE). The pronunciation of "Qin" is similar to the phonetic "cheen", which is considered the possible root of the word "China".China is known as 'Zhōngguó' in Mandarin and pinyin (中國 in traditional chinese or 中国 in simplified chinese). The character zhōng means "middle" or central; the letter, guó, means land, kingdom or country. An appropriate English translation would be "middle kingdom".Ancient China was one of the earliest centers of human civilization. Chinese civilization was also one of the few to invent writing independently, the others being Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley Civilization, the Mayan civilization, the Minoan Civilization of ancient Greece, and Ancient Egypt.
