A Learner’s Chinese Dictionary: Illustrations of the Usages
This dictionary is a key project of NOCFL, suitable for students whose Chinese is at intermediate or higher level. It can also be used as a basic reference book for overseas teachers.
This dictionary is the result of eight years’ combined efforts. It contains more than 10’000 entries, each of which is provided with clear annotation (in both Chinese and English), an illustration of simple usage, and usual syntactic functions. Ample example sentences are given in the dictionary, showing how varied items of each entry are used in different situations. Moreover, rich cultural information and background knowledge are blended into the example sentences, reflecting Chinese social life and cultural psychology.
Besides, the correct word for each item concerned is explained in the dictionary; synonyms and antonyms of most of the entries are given; and differentiation for similar words are also explained in details.
