Comparisons are made between Chinese and English, highlighting the similarities and differences between the two lexicons.

This fascinating work examines the relationships between word and meanings, and demonstrates the ability of language to combine continuity and change. It surpasses the scope of a dictionary and reveals the systematic nature of vocabulary. Features include:

a wealth of language examplesclear comparisons between Chinese and EnglishChinese characters and pinyin romanization throughouta comprehensive index.

The Chinese Lexicon surpasses the scope of a dictionary and reveals the systematic nature of vocabulary. It will prove an invaluable resource for all students and teachers of Chinese.
