    沈尹默 行書歸田錄二則 水墨紙本 橫披

    款識:
    用錢之法, 自五代以來, 以七十七為百, 謂之「省陌」。今市井交易, 又克其五, 謂之「依除」。咸平五年, 陳恕知貢舉, 選士最精, 所解七十二人, 王沂公曾為第一。御試又落其半, 而及第者三十八人, 沂公又為第一。故京師為語曰「南省解一百依除, 殿前放五十省陌也」。是歲取人雖少, 得士最多:宰相三人, 乃沂公與王公隨、章公得象;參知政事一人, 韓公億;侍讀學士一人, 李仲容;御史中丞一人, 王臻;知制誥一人, 陳知微;而汪白青、陽楷二人雖不達, 而皆以文學知名當世。
    今世俗言語之訛, 而舉君子小人皆同其繆者, 惟「打」字爾。打, 丁雅反。其義本謂「考擊」, 故人相毆, 以物相擊, 皆謂之打。而工造金銀器, 亦謂之打可矣, 蓋有槌撾作擊之義也。至於造舟車者曰「打船」、「打車」, 網魚者曰「打魚」, 汲水曰「打水」, 役夫餉飯曰「打飯」, 兵士給衣糧曰「打衣糧」, 從者執傘曰「打傘」, 以糊黏紙曰「打黏」, 以丈尺量地曰「打量」, 舉手試眼之昏明曰「打試」。至於名儒碩學, 語皆如此, 觸事皆謂之打, 而遍檢字書, 了無此字。丁雅反者。其義主考擊之打, 自音謫耿, 以字學言之, 打字從手從丁, 丁又擊物之聲, 故音謫耿為是, 不知因何轉為丁雅也。
    師俊持此紙來為書歐公《歸田錄》二則。試之, 與夾江紙相近, 無紙墨相發之樂。
