IN RESPONSE TO THE NEEDS OF THE GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS LEARNING CHINESE, SETON HALL UNIVERSITY UNDERTOOK A CONTRACT WITH THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION TO COMPILE A BILINGUAL POCKET-SIZE DICTIONARY FOR BEGINNING STUDENTS OF SPOKEN MANDARIN CHINESE. THE PRESENT WORK IS THE CHINESE TO ENGLISH SECTION IN PRELIMINARY FORM. IT WAS COMPILED BY AN EXPERIENCED CHINESE LEXICOGRAPHER AND TEACHER WHO GAVE SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEMS OF ENGLISH-SPEAKING STUDENTS IN LEARNING CHINESE SYNTACTIC STRUCTURE, FUNCTIONAL ELEMENTS (SUCH AS PARTICLES), AND IDIOMATIC EXPRESSIONS. THE INTRODUCTION GIVES COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE DICTIONARY AND DEFINES ITS SCOPE AND METHOD OF PRESENTATION. THE APPROXIMATELY 6,000 ENTRIES ARE LISTED USING PINYIN SYSTEM TRANSCRIPTION AND CHINESE CHARACTERS, AND THE DEFINITION IS ACCOMPANIED BY EXAMPLES OF THE WORD USED IN CONTEXT. APPENDED TO FURTHER AID THE USER ARE A COMPARATIVE TRANSCRIPTION TABLE (PINYIN, YALE, WADE-GILES) AND A CHARACTER INDEX. (JD)
