DE FRANCIS, JOHN
THIS CHARACTER VERSION OF "ADVANCED CHINESE" CAN BE STUDIED FOR READING PURPOSES AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE TRANSCRIPTION VERSION IS STUDIED FOR SPEAKING PURPOSES. THERE ARE 904 NEW CHARACTERS INTRODUCED HERE AMONG THE 150,000 CHARACTERS OF RUNNING TEXT. IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE STUDENT HAS MASTERED THE BEGINNING AND ADVANCED CHINESE TEXTS IN THIS SERIES AND THE "BEGINNING CHINESE READER" AND LESSONS 1 TO 6 OF "INTERMEDIATE CHINESE READER" AS WELL. AS IN THE CHARACTER VERSIONS OF "BEGINNING" AND "INTERMEDIATE CHINESE," THE NEW CHARACTERS IN EACH LESSON ARE PRESENTED FIRST IN LARGE SIZE SO THAT EACH STROKE IS CLEARLY SEEN AND THEN ARE PRESENTED IN SMALLER SIZE ALONG WITH PINYIN ROMANIZATION AND AN ENGLISH TRANSLATION. PAGE AND LINE REFERENCES INDICATE PARALLEL PASSAGES IN THE CORRESPONDING PINYIN TEXT. CHARTS ARE APPENDED LISTING CHARACTERS BY LESSON, NUMBER OF STROKES, AND RADICAL. THE INDEX IS ARRANGED ALPHABETICALLY BY PINYIN FORM. THIS TEXT IS AVAILABLE FOR $3.75 FROM THE YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS, NEW HAVEN, CONN. 06511. (JD)
