Schaum's Outline of Chinese Grammar
Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar

A brand new title for the Modern Grammars series to add to the existing European Languages and to the forthcoming Japanese title. The grammar will present Chinese as spoken in the People's Republic of China (specifically, that spoken around Beijing) and give all examples in simplified characters, traditional characters, romanization (pinyin) and in translation. It will follow the series structure (two parts - one for grammar structures, one for functions), with an accompanying workbook. Linguistic jargon will be kept to a minimum throughout. We will also be creating an accompanying homepage for the workbook with additional exercises (and a reporting system enabling students to send their results to their tutors); this we hope will go further to enhance the performance of the workbook.

Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar
Chinese Medical Chinese: Grammar and Vocabulary

This is a very sophisticated and highly useful work for the student or practitioner of Chinese medicine who is acquiring the original medical language of his/her profession. The work assumes that the student has already acquired a knowledge of how Chinese characters are composed, how they are written by hand, and how they are pronounced. While the text itself can be navigated entirely in Pinyin, students should know how to use Chinese language dictionaries. Anyone who has basic knowledge of Chinese can use this book to acquire more than 2,500 terms.
The book is presented in two parts. The first describes the basic features of the literary language of Chinese medicine and its relationship to the language of the classical period and to the modern vernacular of northern China (known as Mandarin). It explains many grammatical constructions commonly encountered in Chinese medical texts and describes in detail how Chinese medical terms are composed. The second part presents vocabulary and terminology as its component characters. The discussions are organized in categories that cover Basic Theories, Diseases, Pathomechanisms and Pattern Identification, Principles and Methods of Treatment, Chinese Pharmaceutics, and Acupuncture. The characters are introduced in sets according to subject matter (e.g. the five phases, inspection of the tongue, pulse-taking, women's diseases, etc.). Each of these sets is followed by a section that presents examples of compound terms which use the characters thus far introduced. There are drills that test the vocabulary, with answers at the end of the book. In all cases, the Pinyin pronunciation and English rendering of each term are given, with Kenyon and Knott phonetic transcriptions of the English renderings for the benefit of non-English-speaking learners.

It will also provide linguists with a wealth of information about the language and a large stock of well-chosen example sentences." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
