Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This valuable language reference book presents 201 of the most often-used Mandarin Chinese monosyllabic verbs, with compounds and phrases for each verb. This title departs from Barron's more typical 201/501 Verbs books in that it does not present conjugation tables. Chinese verbs cannot be conjugated because they do not change to indicate tense, person, or number. This book presents each verb, one verb per page, with both its Chinese character and its English infinitive form printed at the top of the page. Examples of common verb compounds are then presented in exemplary phrases with Chinese characters. Pronunciation for each phrase is given in the Roman alphabet (pinyin) and their meaning is given in English. The authors open this book with an enlightening introduction that explains Mandarin Chinese verb usage. They also provide extensive appendices at the end of the book, listing Chinese characters in both regular and simplified forms.

Book News Annotation:

This guide gives the most common verbs in the language, one per page, with the most useful variants and related words. It provides the Chinese character for the verb and the English infinitive form, and includes compounds and exemplary phrases, pronunciations in the Roman alphabet, and appendices of Chinese characters in both traditional and simplified forms. The introduction is very instructive, giving readers basic concepts about Chinese verbs (they do not indicate tense, for example and do not indicate person or number) and the editors include a comparative table of Pinyin, Yale, Wade-Giles, Shuyin Fuhao and Gwoyeu Romatzyh systems.
