Formerly published by Hippocrene as the Chinese-English Frequency Dictionary: A Study Guide to Mandarin Chinese's 500 Most Frequently Used Words, this new edition incorporates new terms and usage changes that have occurred in the language in the last ten years. Like the original, it is an indispensable reference for any student seeking to master the Chinese writing system and quickly expand their vocabulary and comprehension of Mandarin Chinese. Presented in pinyin order, for easy study and review by beginning and advanced students alike, each entry includes the simplified version of the Chinese character, its pinyin transcription (pronunciation), English meaning, and examples of its usage within commons words and phrases in Chinese. Three indices also list the 500 characters in order of frequency and stroke count, for study and reference.
