Using Chinese Synonyms by Grace Qiao Zhang
This new guide to Chinese synonyms is the first to be produced specifically for English speaking students of Chinese. Its aim is to enable them to develop, broaden, and enhance their awareness of the complexity and richness of Chinese vocabulary by presenting, in an easily accessible form, information not readily available in traditional dictionaries. It contains a wide variety of material, including informal modes of expression as well as the formal, and practical vocabulary as well as literary language. The tabular layout is designed for maximum ease of reference, with English equivalents and sample Chinese contexts for each Chinese item. There are two indexes enabling the user quickly to locate any given Chinese or English word.
