穿越千年的52个汉字与我们的现代生活息息相关
地道英文讲解汉字源流、用法;
鲜活的中国故事介绍当代中国


《汉字会说话》由资深汉语教学专家,波士顿大学黄伟嘉教授主笔。中外编写团队用地道的英文讲述汉字源流、用法,结合时事、历史,传播经典中国故事。
不同于一般汉字学习图书,该书把汉字放在鲜活的中国故事中,联系话题相关社会时事和文化潮流,如“年度汉字”一样,以高度的概括性,反映当下中国社会不同领域的最新发展。
例如:“创”与目前的创新、创业潮;从“观”切入,从古代“观象授时”到中国天文观测最前沿;从“兽”字切入,从把动物视为一种资源,到动物保护意识的觉醒;从“闲”字切入,欣赏古人的生活情趣,呼吁人们慢下来,回归对生活本身和传统的关注;从“喜”字切入,讲述古人闻鼓声则喜的简单快乐,到娱乐爆炸对现代人的冲击。
该书主要针对汉语学习者,但文章的可读性强,对中国文化感兴趣的一般读者也能体会到阅读的乐趣。
In this age of modern distractions, we may wish to remind ourselves of simpler times with the Chinese character for “happy,” or xi, which originally resembled an audience delighted by drumbeats. Evolving from scratches made on animal bones over 3,000 years ago, Chinese characters are imprinted with the marks of ancient beliefs, events, and figures that defined China’s history. Learning Chinese characters is a chance to dive deep into Chinese culture. Still vibrant, and ever-changing with the times, Chinese characters present a window to a civilization’s past, a mirror to its present, and a bridge to its future.
