This dictionary consists of 7400 new terms that have appeared in China between 1949 and 1999. Most of them originated after 1978.

To help readers understand and learn them, they are also written in the Chinese phonetic alphabet (pinyin), together with explanations in English. Most entries are provided with phrases, and altogether 2800 examples are given for most.
The entries selected for this dictionary are drawn from a wide range of books, newspapers and magazines published in China. They include terms used in political affairs, economics, cultural and military affairs, science and teahnology, and other areas. The extries themselves can be words, phrases, abbreviations, colloquial expressions, and popular terms.
All entries are arranged according to the Chinese phonetic alphabet and the four tones of the word. A hyphen is used between words of a short term. Special terms are capitalized.
