The Oxford Starter Chinese Dictionary
Edited by BOPING YUAN and SALLY K. CHURCH

    
   
This revolutionary new dictionary is designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to Chinese in a completely new way. It covers all the vocabulary learners will need in their first years of study and gives unique guidance to the grammar and usage of the language.

    Created specifically for beginners, this dictionary features color headwords and translations; no confusing abbreviations; and warning symbols show potential problem areas. It includes thousands of example phrases drawn from real-life situations and full romanization of the Chinese text with Chinese script following in simplified characters. It also offers a guide on how to write Chinese characters and provides full guidance on the pronunciation of Mandarin Chinese. Word patterns and constructions from language areas such as dates and telling time are grouped together to show similarities and differences.

The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Japanese and English Dictionary


 
   
   
An essential reference for general readers, students, translators, travelers, and business people, The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Japanese & English Dictionary serves as a valuable supplement to English-Japanese and Japanese-English dictionaries. It provides parallel English and Japanese word-lists containing 28,000 items for each language. Based on the premise that pictures can more clearly convey certain kinds of information, the dictionary presents a list of vocabulary relating to a subject together with a picture--six of which are in color--illustrating that subject.

    Approximately 384 sections cover a broad range of subjects in the fields of science, medicine, technology, industry, commerce, and arts and leisure. Both English and Japanese vocabulary appear on the same page for easy use. The dictionary also provides fully alphabetized indexes in both languages which refer the reader not only to the various subjects and contexts in which a word is used, but also to the correct translation and vocabulary of an entire subject.
