Oxford University Press Publishes English-Chinese Dictionary

ocd75.JPGOxford University Press has released a new Oxford English-Chinese Dictionary. The 2,064-page publication contains more than 300,000 definitions and phrases. It carries a $75 price tag.

New Chinese speakers must understand different tones, and the dictionary includes help with sounds: “All the Chinese headwords are shown with Pinyin and tones, so that the learner of Chinese can pronounce each one correctly.”

Back in 2006, HarperCollins launched, an online Collins English-Chinese dictionary designed specifically for students learning English. When correctly pronounced, “citaden” is the Mandarin-Chinese word for dictionary. (Via Publishers Weekly)
