The charms of the 8,000 entries incorporated into this book, compiled by an experienced editor and teacher of linguistics lie in their comprehensiveness and comparatively managed way. Of the 33 chapters, 19 are devoted to the most commonly used expressions of everyday life, eleven deal with parts of speech, and the remaining three are an engrossing survey of homonyms, idioms, puns and xiehouyu, common sayings peculiar to the Chinese language. In the appendix two articles on the divergence of the vocabulary and grammar of colloquial Cantonese and Putonghua are presented. All entries are supplied with phonetic alphabets to ensure correct pronunciation.
