This dictionary compares and contrasts near-synonyms in groups of two, three, or even more items. The list of near-synonyms in Chinese and in other languages is open-ended, and this dictionary only studies some 700 entries that pose problems for non-native speakers when they are employed in either verbal or written expressions. This dictionary attempts to further reduce the inadequacies by placing near-synonyms in actual frames of usage, providing enough contexts from which readers will be able to draw their own conclusions. It contains both Chinese characters and pinyin translation.
