ParkeNYU Posted January 3, 2015 at 07:13 AM Report Share Posted January 3, 2015 at 07:13 AM Why is it seemingly impossible to find a Mandarin Textbook for English-speakers that uses only Mandarin Phonetic Symbols (Zhuyin / Bopomofo) to annotate Chinese characters? In fact, the only textbook I could find that offers MPS at all is Practical Audio-Visual Chinese. I've modified the introductory section (25 pages) of the first volume to remove the Hanyu and Tongyong Pinyin content: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15757362/PAVC1_Textbook_MPS_sample.pdf I've also compiled a phonetically annotated list of all the characters taught in the first two volumes: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15757362/PAVC_Characters.pdf To remove all instances of Romanised annotation from the entire series would be a monumental task. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what format the source files were written in. Is there hope for such a textbook? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
