Ralph is a world-citizen, a geoinformation specialist by profession, and interested in many topics. At the end of this month the University of Hawai`i Press is releasing the ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary.
This is a big year for Mandarin-English dictionaries, with the forthcoming release of the ABC ECCE and the release three months ago of the massive Oxford Chinese Dictionary. Unlike the Oxford dictionary, the ABC ECCE offers both Pinyin and Chinese characters for all entries and sample sentences. From what I’ve seen so far of the ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary, I expect it to become the dictionary for English-speaking students of Mandarin. The ABC English-Chinese, Chinese-English Dictionary retails for only US$20, compared to US$75 for the Oxford. This entry was posted in Chinese, Chinese characters, dictionary, English, Hanyu, John DeFrancis, languages, linguistics, Mandarin, pinyin, romanization and tagged chinese-english dictionary, english-chinese dictionary, mandarin dictionary by Pinyin Info.


I have an Oxford Chinese minidictionary that must have been published about 10 years ago, and it has pinyin in both sections, always with the correct tone marks.
For example, the Oxford dictionary has no Pinyin in the English-Mandarin section, just Chinese characters; in some other places tone marks are missing from some of the Pinyin, where it appears at all. I remember back when I first got to Taiwan, it was difficult to find a dictionary that wasn’t like that. Oddly, the one dictionary that I did find with pinyin in the E-C half was the old red oxford one.
Below is a series interesting collection of Chinese-English translations errors and similar mistakes can be found in many places in China. I mostly write about GIS, information management and visualization, cartography and, occasionally, remote sensing.
It was revolutionary in that, for the first time, a Mandarin-English dictionary was ordered entirely by the headwords’ pronunciation as written in pinyin.
The new dictionary, which is 1,252 pages long, has 29,670 entries in its English-Mandarin section and 37,963 entries for Mandarin-English (total 67,633 entries).


They study English just for the sole purpose of having a good mark in the test instead of using it in work and daily life. But up to now there been no ABC dictionary with an English to Mandarin section as well as a Mandarin to English one. Anyway, just thought I’d point out that other dictionaries do exist, just maybe not for advanced speakers. For more on the Oxford, see the video at Danwei and the entries at Chinese Forums (with some images) and Language Log.
