Which Chinese Dictionary?
I have to retire my faithful worn-out Chinese dictionary which has been with me for more than 20 years, maybe even 30, I have lost count. AJ has been using this one too, but I realised its limitation. It is good in single character (字) explanation but not in terms of words (词).
So I made a trip to Popular bookstore near my place & was greeted by this.
It was kind of overwhelming. So many, which one is good?
I then whatsapp his Chinese teacher & she sent me a picture! :)
Tada! I saw this on the shelf & decided to flip it to have a look.
I like this very much! You may notice that not only the single characters (字) were explained, quite a few no. of words (词) were too. It cost slightly less than $20 (before Popular member discount) so it is certainly a good investment. But mind you! It is 6cm thick! Definitely not the type you would want your child to bring to school.
