Chinese-Mandarin: Wade-Giles Romanization Drills.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
Lessons are presented on Mandarin Chinese concerning how to convert from the Yale romanization system to the Wade-Giles romanization system. The Yale system is the one most widely studied in the United States. Since biographical and geographical names in newspapers, magazines, books, and maps are still spelled out in the Wade-Giles romanization system, it is useful for students using the Yale system to have some knowledge of the other method. Problems of conversion from one system to the other lie in the 12 initials and 22 finals that are spelled differently. These problems are discussed in the 16 lessons with exercises. (NCR)
