"A Student Handbook for Chinese Function Words," helps to make the learning of Chinese function words easier. It contains more than 500 regularly used function words, which are coupled with straightforward explanations and detailed descriptions of their usage. To facilitate students' learning, sample sentences in Chinese, English and pinyin are constructed with the most commonly used 2,905 characters, among which many have appeared in elementary and intermediate level Chinese textbooks.<P>Some special features: 1. All entries are listed in alphabetical order of pinyin. 2. Each entry includes: the word in Chinese character(s), the traditional form of a character, if it exists, is also included; pinyin for the word; part(s) of speech (such as adverb, preposition, conjunction, auxiliary) in English; English explanation of the word's meaning; English explanation of how to use the word when it has more than one function in the language; sample sentences in Chinese characters (both simplified and traditional); sample sentences in pinyin; and English explanation of the sample sentences 3. "The Handbook" will be a comprehensive and handy reference for students and teachers of Chinese at all levels (elementary, intermediate and advanced).
