Spoken by over 850 million people world-wide, Mandarin Chinese is the standard language for business and trade in China, one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and the world's most widely-spoken language. Mandarin is also a useful study and reference tool for students of Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Tibetan, all of which have strong cultural roots in Chinese. Features of the dictionary include: simplified Chinese characters and the internationally standard pinyin Romanisation for all entries; pronunciation key; list of characters sorted by stroke count to aid in identifying unfamiliar characters; and, over 15,000 entries. This convenient and practical dictionary is ideally suited to the needs of students, businesspeople, and travellers.
