This dictionary contains approximately 14,500 words, phrases and abbreviations new to the Chinese language since about 1976 that appear in the general language press, especially in the People’s Republic of China. Three kinds of ‘new words’ are documented in this collection: newly-coined words in the language, words that have taken on new meanings, and outdated words since 1949 that have been newly revived. Some words coined outside of China also appear in this dictionary. This dictionary is intended to be used in conjunction with an authoritative Chinese-English dictionary.
