This Dictionary refers to the Ministry of Education's list of 3,000 essential Chinese characters. We have arranged these characters to maximize ease of use for students approaching Mandarin as a foreign language: characters are first arranged according to their spelling in the Hanyu Pinyin phonetic system. Characters that have the same pronunciation are arranged, in ascending order, according to the number of strokes used to write them. When the stroke number is also the same, characters are listed according to frequency, with more frequent characters coming first. To help students learn and practice characters, a stroke-by-stroke diagram accompanies each one. Also contained in each entry are Hanyu Pinyin and MPS (Mandarin Phonetic Symbols, also known as BoPoMoFo) phonetic systems, radicals, stroke numbers, phrases, idioms, and English definitions. For greater ease of use and flexibility, we have provided four indices to the dictionary: Pinyin, MPS (Mandarin Phonetic Symbols, also known as BoPoMoFo), stroke number, and frequency. If one learns the 3,000 characters in this dictionary, one will be able to recognize 99 percent of the characters published in various Chinese media. Both traditional and simplified characters editions are available. For Spanish speakers, the Spanish version is also provided.
