Mutant Mandarin: A Guide to New Chinese Slang
by Zhou Yimin and James J. Wang
Following up the success of his book Outrageous Chinese, James Wang has adapted and enlarged a glossary of new slang published in China by Zhou Yimin, director of the Modern Chinese Research Institute at Beijing Normal University. China is changing rapidly due to an influx of foreigners into China's new open society, and the influence is especially felt in the slang of young people. You'll learn such terms as Bai-Bai (from the English "bye-bye," and meaning to break up with a lover) and Mi (originally "honey from bees" but now like the English "sweetheart"). Contains examples in simplified characters, pinyin romanization and English plus a glossary of computer and Internet terms. Great for language students and those interested in contemporary Chinese society. 1995, 175 pp.
