Vocabulary Expansion in Modern Standard Chinese.
Edwards, Louise
Babel: Australia, v32 n3 p24-25,29 Oct-Dec 1997
Examines the discrepancy between spoken and written vocabularies in modern standard Chinese (MSC) textbooks that contributes to slow vocabulary development, and outlines a teaching technique to extend students' vocabulary using the ideographic nature of MSC characters rather than phonetic learning to increase efficient use of vocabulary (characters) already committed to memory. Describes specific activities to enhance learner awareness. (MSE)
