Mandarin Chinese Dictionary: English-Chinese.
Wang, Fred Fangyu
This dictionary is a companion volume to the "Mandarin Chinese Dictionary (Chinese-English)" published in 1967 by Seton Hall University. The purpose of the dictionary is to help English-speaking students produce Chinese sentences in certain cultural situations by looking up the English expressions. Natural, spoken Chinese expressions within the sound and vocabulary control of first or second year students of Chinese have been selected for the dictionary. The dictionary contains 4000 full-illustrated entries. The selection of the English entries and illustrative sentences is based on common daily usage of the English language and takes into consideration the cultural situation of the Chinese translation. English idioms have been translated into idiomatic Chinese. Behind the compilation of this work lies the basic concept that the best way to learn a foreign language is by speaking. The dictionary enables the user to become acquainted with the basic patterns of Mandarin through the aid of illustrative sentences under each entry. (Author/VM)
