Brief Description:
Many of the most commonly used Chinese characters are polyphones. With their linked phonetic and semantic ambiguity, these characters make it difficult for learners of Chinese to read and write Chinese.

To help learners master this group of characters, the dictionary provides full information on the pronunciation and use of these characters.

This is the first bilingual dictionary of its kind that uses simplified characters, and it servers as an up-to-date guide suitable for students of Chinese at all levels.

Main Features:
The book covers 386 frequently used polyphones.
Each reading and each meaning is illustrated with example words and sentences.
Every character has pinyin and its English translation, arranged alphabetically by pinyin.
A stroke-count index is also included.
