Publisher Comments:

This is a compete and easy–to–use guide for reading and writing traditional Chinese characters.

Reading and Writing Chinese has been the leading text for foreign students and teachers of the Chinese writing system since it was first published in 1978. This completely revised edition draws on the lessons learnt from the use of the book in classrooms so as to provide a more convenient and up–to–date introduction to written Chinese. Over 1,100 new combinations of characters have been added, increasing the total vocabulary significantly to about 4,500 items. There are also new notes on usage to give students insight into the contemporary state of the Chinese language. The student's ability to read Chinese and write Chinese are reinforced throughout.

For each of the basic 1,062 characters, the pronunciation, definition and derivation are given, with examples of the use of most words and a chart showing how to write each character. Memorization tips and cautionary cross–reference to look–alike characters are also provided, as well as notes to help clarify those overlooked aspects of the Chinese writing system.

Key features of this book:

  • The Student's 1,020 List.
  • The Official 2,000 List.
  • Over 2,000 characters and 2,500 combinations.
  • Definitions and explanations.
  • Standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization.
  • Memorization hints and stroke–order diagrams.
  • Hong Kong/Taiwan and China/Singapore forms.
  • Traditional and modern radical systems.

Synopsis:

Aimed at both the beginner and advanced students, and base on Professor McNaughton's experience as a teacher of Chinese at Oberlin College, this book introduces and defines more than 2000 Chinese characters.
