Following the rapid growth of powerful computer hardware and sophisticated software, Chinese computing and data processing has become a very exciting field. This book presents 6,321 of the most commonly used Chinese words in two orderings: one in descending frequency, and the other in phonetic groups according to Suen's new phonetic system. Extracted from a corpus of over forty thousand Chinese words, these most frequently used words cover 90% of almost one million word samples selected from various sources like popular newspapers, novels and various reading materials.The data presented in this book are of the most fundamental importance in the design and construction of word processors and computers for processing Chinese text and data, investigation of lexicographical and phonological matters. Linguists, computer scientists, psychologists, students, teachers, and specialists of the Chinese language, as well as sinologists and scholars in computational studies of Chinese words and sounds should find this book very informative and interesting.
