By arranging frequently used characters under the phonetic element they have in common, rather than only under their radical, the Dictionary encourages the student to link characters according to their phonetic. The system of cross-referencing then allows the student to find easily all the characters in the dictionary which have the same phonetic element, thus helping to fix in the memory the link between a character and its sound and meaning.
This innovative resource will be an excellent study-aid for students with a basic grasp of Chinese, whether they are studying with a teacher or learning on their own.

'The whole thrust of the work is that it is more helpful to learners of Chinese characters to see them in terms of sound, than in visual terms. It is a radical, provocative and constructive idea. The book would be ideal for teachers of Chinese language and for students beyond elementary level, as well as for anyone learning on their own.' -- Dr. Valerie Pellatt, University of Newcastle
'This volume would be a valuable supplemental study aid for those learning Chinese, when used in conjunction with a standard Chinese-English dictionary.' -- Choice
'A valuable aid for any library serving learners of the Chinese Language' -- Reference Reviews
