The dictionary is specially compiled for English learners of Chinese as a foreign or second language. It contains more than 23,000 entries commonly used in modern speech and communication. Entries are based on every day speech, with special emphasis on collocations and sentence usage. All Chinese characters are followed by Chinese pinyin phonetics. This dictionary is a revised and expanded edition of 'The E-C Pinyin Pocket Dictionary' (1988), which has been well received both at home and abroad. Some compilers of the former Pocket Dictionary have taken part in the compilation of this revised edition.
