Abstract: Chan Master Xuyun (1840-1959) was one of the most revered master in the Twentieth century; he was known for his great monastery rebuilding opera, and also for his contribution to the preservation and development of the doctrines of the five Chan schools of Buddhism. In this paper I translate from Chinese and analise - from both a linguistic and a tematic point of view - six Dharma Dielogues (fayu)taken from his collection of religious speeches ("Xuyun heshang fahui"). From the comparison with the Dialogues (yulu) of 'classical' Chan masters it emerges that the Dialogues of Master Xuyun resemble the traditional yulu edited in the Song epoch, not only for what genre and themes are concerned, but also for linguistic eterogeneity - sice they still contain a high proportion of vernacular elements belonging to the Medieval epoch of Buddhism, function words typical of literary language, and elements proper to the language of his own time
