Brief Description:
 For most foreign students of Chinese, measure words are perhaps one  of the major problems to deal with throughout their studies.  Improving on its first edition of 1993, Learning Chinese Measure Words, this book has been revised to help foreign students solve this problem in a better way.

It is intended mainly for learners of Chinese language who require particular help in broadening their knowledge of the connotations and the different uses of Chinese measure words.  For this revised edition, 178 commonly used measure words have been  included, compared with the 143 measure words selected for the previous edition.

Other differences between this edition and its previous one are: the situational passages and dialogues as well as the new words are removed; instead, more measure word phrases accompanied by their pinyin form and English equivalents have been provided.  Synonym discrimination is made when necessary for better understanding and use of these measure words.

Major Features:
1.            Contains 178 measure words currently in common use
2.            A-Z listing of entries for easy access
3.            Explanations in both Chinese and English
4.            Examples followed by their pinyin form and English equivalents.
5.            Well illustrated with clear and lively layout.
6.            Written for foreign learners beginning to learn Chinese
