Having mastered the basic vocabulary and elementary grammar, a student generally learns to use a language that he wants to achieve mainly by practice in the sentence patterns, which are the living substance of the language. There are basic sentence patterns as well as special sentence patterns in Chinese. Most of the Chinese special sentence patterns involve word group patterns, adjective patterns, noun patterns, preposition patterns, etc. However, in English most sentence patterns are verb patterns. Many Chinese special sentence patterns are related to the predicate of the sentence, in which nouns, adjectives, word groups, etc play a part. Chinese word groups are important elements forming the predicate of the sentence. Nouns and adjectives alone can also function as the predicate of the sentence. However, in English phrases (similar to Chinese word groups) as well as nouns and adjectives alone cannot function as the predicate of the sentence. In this book, six Chinese basic sentence patterns and sixteen Chinese special sentence patterns are introduced, which cover all the most important and most commonly-used Chinese sentence patterns. This book will minutely illustrate them one by one with charts. They are classified in accordance with their functions in the sentence in a systematical way, along with necessary comparison with English sentence patterns and translation. When you have got a good command of the structures and usage of the Chinese sentence patterns introduced in this book, you are sure to be able to write or to speak standard Chinese more readily and fluently.

Professor Yuan Liangjun, research fellow with the Institute of Literature under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, wrote in his work History of Different Schools of Fiction in Hong Kong, that “it is the only novel series so far portraying the ultra-Left errors in China during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s of the last century. With its grand boldness of vision and very true-to-life setting, the novel series profoundly reflects the tragic history of that period.”
