DICTIONARY OF SPOKEN CHINESE. YALE LINGUISTIC SERIES, 8.
Yale Univ., New Haven, CT.
THIS CHINESE-ENGLISH AND ENGLISH-CHINESE DICTIONARY IS THE AUTHORIZED REVISION AND EXPANSION OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT DICTIONARY OF 1945. IT WAS PRIMARILY WRITTEN FOR USE BY STUDENTS OF COLLOQUIAL MANDARIN ON THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL AND SERVES AS A TOOL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS AND AS A GENERAL GRAMMATICAL REFERENCE GUIDE AS WELL. THE CHINESE-ENGLISH SECTION IS ARRANGED BY THE YALE ROMANIZATION OF THE WORD. THE WRITTEN CHINESE CHARACTER IS GIVEN ALONG WITH THE ROMANIZED FORM AND A GRAMMATICAL SYMBOL INDICATES THE PART OF SPEECH. THE DEFINITIONS ARE SHORT AND EXAMPLES OF THE WORD AS USED IN EACH CONTEXT ARE GIVEN IN CHINESE CHARACTERS AND ENGLISH. IN THE ENGLISH TO CHINESE SECTION, ONLY YALE ROMANIZATION IS USED TO INDICATE THE CHINESE. A RADICAL CHART AND CHARACTER INDEX CORRELATE THE CHARACTERS WITH THE ROMANIZED FORM. THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM THE YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 149 YORK STREET, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT 06511 ($15.00). (JD)
