This study proposes the Distillation Method for the comparative studies on languages in contact. This method is applied to the Bai language, which comes under heavy contact with Chinese. The distillation method consists of the following steps: (i) Intra-comparison; (ii) Inter-comparison; and (iii) Recognition. The intra-comparison may exclude later borrowings and recent innovatios in the Bai dialects after their separation from Proto-Bai. The second step, inter-comparison is used to exclude some early borrowings before Proto-Bai. Therefore, the data on the genetic transmission of the Bai language may be made cleaner. In the recognition part, the Inexplicability Principle and the Rank Theory can be made use to recognize the inheritance status of the lexical items in the cleaner data.<中央研究院語言學研究所>
