This book is intended to assist the beginning and intermediate student of Mandarin (hereafter referred to as Chinese) as a supplement to other textbook and class materials, and as a reference grammar.
Chinese morphology can be daunting to students. By comparison with English, a tonal language like Chinese may seem very mandarin indeed. But at the same time, these forms adhere rigidly to a system of relative simplicity, which lends itself well to explanation in the form of a Schaum's Outline.
This morphology will be presented in a manner both concise and systematic so that the student may consult it on particular points of difficulty or use it to tackle the subject as a whole. The Outline will explain everything a student needs to begin a study of Chinese Grammar.
The book will provide an accessible summary of the major features of Chinese Grammar with explanations written for language students at the secondary and post-secondary level and exercises for practical review.
