Alphabetically ordered Pinyin Dictionary
This dictionary ushers in a new era in Chinese lexicography. The first strictly alphabetically ordered and Pinyin-computerized dictionary, it offers the simplest and quickest way to look up a tern whose pronunciation is known.
User-friendly radial and stroke indexes are provided for those cases when pronunciation of a term is not known. Each entry provides Chinese characters, part of speech, environment (area and level of usage), definition in English, and, possibly, examples. An innovative typographical format packs more than 71,400 entries into a handy, portable size without sacrifice of legibility.
Edited by John DeFrancis, emeritus professor of Chinese at the University of Hawaii.
