Author: Yong Ho
Publisher: Hippocrene Books
Category: Foreign Language Study
A dictionary of the 500 most frequently used words in the Chinese language, this instructive reference provides meaning and grammatical explanations for the use of each word. Based on a scientific study that concludes that learning a language can be achieved by mastering its most used words, the text acts as both a traditional dictionary and a teaching guide to the world's most widely-spoken language. Each entry is presented in both Chinese characters and roman letters, with pinyin transcription. This book also includes an introduction to the Chinese language and a pronunciation guide.
"Armed with the limited conversational Chinese he learned in the U.S. Army during World War II, Sidney Shapiro, a New York lawyer, arrives in Shanghai in 1947 for "a look around." He ends up spending the rest of his life in China." "A foreigner in an alien land, he falls in love with and marries Phoenix, a Chinese beauty and active revolutionary. Entranced by Chinese culture and society, he gradually becomes deeply and personally involved in highly dramatic developments - the defeat of the Chiang Kai-shek dictatorship and the establishment of the People's Republic, Land Reform, the Korean War, the break with the Soviet Union, the war in Vietnam, communes and the Big Leap Forward, the "cultural revolution," the Tiananmen Square Protest, economic reforms, the opening to the West, and troubled U.S.-China relations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
