Many of the most commonly used Chinese characters are polyphones. With their linked phonetic and semantic ambiguity, they represent an added burden for anyone learning to read and write Chinese. This dictionary will help lighten that burden by providing full information on the pronunciation and use of these characters. An up-to-date guide suitable for students of Chinese at all levels, this covers a corpus of 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 included. This is the first bilingual dictionary of its kind that uses simplified characters.
