This book lists approximately 4,800 core Chinese words with English equivalents including standard American pronunciation.  Main entries are in Pinyin (Romanized standard Chinese pronunciation) alphabetically with Chinese characters (both simplified and traditional if applicable). In the next line, pasts of speech label ([n.] for nouns and [v.] for verbs) and the entry’s English equivalents followed by standard American pronunciation with focus on stressed syllable.*in bold print.

A syllable is part of a word that contains one vowel sound. In every word of two or more syllables, one syllable is stressed. It’s called ‘stressed syllable’. The vowel sound in that syllable is louder, higher in pitch, and longer than the other vowel sounds in the same word.

The contrast between stressed and unstressed syllables is very important because it helps to create the rhythm of English. The native English speakers rely more on stressed syllable to understand what you say than on the individual sounds of the word.

This book is ideal for learners of English as a second language who want to communicate more effectively and also for learners of Chinese who know English.
