BA7617 201 Mandarin Chinese Verbs 2nd ed $16.99
ISBN: 9780764137617 ISBN10: 0764137611.
Written by: Eugene Ching.
Softcover 240 pp.
This valuable language reference book presents compounds and phrases for 201 of the most often-used Mandarin Chinese monosyllabic verbs. This title departs from Barron's more typical 201/501 Verbs books in that it does not present conjugation tables since Chinese verbs cannot be conjugated because they do not change to indicate tense, person, or number. This book presents one verb per page with both its Chinese character and its English infinitive form printed at the top of the page. Examples of common verb compounds are then presented in exemplary phrases with Chinese characters. Pronunciation for each phrase is given in the Roman alphabet (pinyin) and their meaning is given in English. The authors open this book with an enlightening introduction that explains Mandarin Chinese verb usage. They also provide extensive appendices at the end of the book, listing Chinese characters in both traditional and simplified forms.
