Abstract:

500 Common Chinese Idioms is the ideal tool for all intermediate to advanced
learners of Chinese. Based on large corpora of authentic language data, it
presents the 500 most commonly used Chinese idioms or chengyu, along
with a variety of synonyms, antonyms and the most common structures,
enabling the reader to make educated guesses about the meanings of
hundreds of unfamiliar idioms.

Key features include:

*the idiom in both simplified and traditional characters
*a literal English translation and English equivalents
*two suitable example sentences, plus explanations and usage notes
*a Pinyin index and stroke order index.

This practical dictionary is suitable both for class use and independent study
and will be of interest to students and teachers of Chinese alike.
