A CHINESE-ENGLISH GLOSSARY OF CURRENT READING TEXTS.
LEVY, HOWARD S.; AND OTHERS
A GLOSSARY OF 4,500 CHINESE ENTRIES WAS DEVELOPED. THE GLOSSARY CONTAINS THE VOCABULARY FROM TEXTS PUBLISHED BY YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS AND THOSE PREPARED BY THE FOREIGN SERVICE INSTITUTE (FSI) STAFF OF TAICHUNG, TAIWAN. THE MATERIALS INCLUDED ARE SELECTIONS FROM CHINESE COMMUNIST LITERATURE, NEWSPAPER SELECTIONS FROM THE MAINLAND PRESS, A SPEECH ON CONTRADICTIONS BY MAO TSE-TUNG, AND LECTURES ON ECONOMICS BY PROFESSOR CHANG YEN - T'IEN. ENTRIES ARE ARRANGED THUS--(1) CHINESE CHARACTERS, BY RADICALS AND NUMBER OF STROKES, (2) THE YALE ROMANIZATION FOR THE CHARACTERS WITH ENGLISH TRANSLATION, AND (3) FINALLY THE REFERENCES WITH THE RELEVANT PAGE NUMBERS. MEANINGS ARE GENERALLY ASSIGNED ACCORDING TO THE SPECIFIC USAGE OF THE TERM IN THE TEXT UNDER CONSIDERATION. SIMPLIFIED OR ABBREVIATED CHARACTERS ARE INCLUDED, ARRANGED TO FOLLOW THE TRADITIONAL FORM. CHARACTERS IN ABBREVIATED FORM IN THE TEXTS ARE ALSO LISTED DUE TO THEIR FREQUENT USE IN COMMUNIST READING MATERIALS. THE AUTHOR SUGGESTS THAT THE GLOSSARY SHOULD BE USEFUL WITH MATERIALS OTHER THAN THOSE FROM WHICH IT WAS DERIVED (RS)
