A Dictionary of Mandarin Verbs and Adjectives.
Li, Y. C.; And Others
A dictionary of Mandarin Chinese verbs and adjectives, a companion to a Mandarin grammar, is intended as an extensive teaching lexicon of a major Chinese word class. It catalogues 4,500 words and combinations, with instructions in the proper and various applications of each item through linguistic explanations and illustrative sentences when appropriate. Entries are arranged alphabetically by their pin-yin romanizations, with useful combinations listed. Meanings and nuances are listed in their order of frequency. For every meaning, likely contexts are indicated by description, example sentences, or both. Verbs co-occurring with resultative complements, negatives, auxiliaries, and so on are noted with detailed explanations. Taiwan and People's Republic of China usages are noted and illustrated. (MSE)
