Short

Published in 1931 and revised in 1943, this small but comprehensive dictionary contains 7,773 Chinese characters and 104,000 compounds taken from the classics, general literature, magazines, and newspapers. Necessary corrections in regard to pronunciation have been made; the tones of the characters have been checked; and a large number of terms have been added in order to facilitate the reading of periodicals and newspapers—whether political, economic, chemical, or military.
