  • ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary

    By John Defrancis

    The ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary (ECCE) is a student-oriented bilingual dictionary that, like other dictionaries in the ABC series, organizes Chinese words by their pronunciation as written in pinyin. This innovative, straightforward alphabetical organization allows the user to find most words more quickly and easily. It also facilitates the comparison of words that are pronounced similarly or identically, which is not possible in traditionally-ordered dictionaries. The series’ alphabetical ordering has been imitated in other dictionaries, but ECCE is still unique in that it offers detailed and authoritative coverage of grammar (parts of speech, constructions, and examples) and orthography (both simplified and complex characters as well as pinyin).ECCE contains 67,633 entries: 29,670 in the English-Chinese section, 37,963 in the Chinese-English section. The latter is an abridgment of the massive ABC Chinese-English Comprehensive Dictionary, with improvements such as more example sentences, the inclusion of both pinyin and characters for all sentences, and indications of vocabulary grade levels to help learners prioritize their studies by indicating the most basic and important entries. The addition of an entirely new English-Chinese section makes ECCE the ideal portable reference. As in the Comprehensive dictionary, two indexes (Stroke and Radical) assist in looking up a character when its shape is known but not its pronunciation.The rich and encyclopaedic scope of information provided makes the ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary an especially useful resource for both language learners and professionals alike.The dictionary is a handy 4.5 x 7.5 inches with a plastic flexcover.
  • Addictionary: Brave New Words

    By Jim Banister

    Our Price: $6.50
    • Format: Paperback
    • ISBN-13: 9780810972698
    • Publisher: HARRY N ABRAMS INC
    • Published: October 2008
    We all invent words and coin phrases; it’s how language evolves. Taken from the popular website by the same name, Addictionary: Brave New Werds collects the best of these neologisms—“werds”—into this handy volume, organized into categories (including technology, politics, dating, sports, religion, and medicine) and cleverly illustrated throughout. Everyone knows a “dumpegator,” a person who delegates huge tasks ten minutes before they are due; many have encountered people who suffer from “algoreaphobia,” an irrational fear of the former presidential candidate. A select few have reached “beervana,” the blissful state of oblivion brought on through copious consumption of malted hops; while others might be unrealistically proportioned, or “dollumptuous.” A great gift for any wordsmith, Addictionary is on the cutting edge of the English language, staking claims on new linguistic territory with an arch blend of the sharply intellectual and the sublimely silly.
