Excerpt from Analytical Vocabulary of the New Testament

HE present volume is an enlarged and revised edition of the first New Testament Vocabulary published in the Mand arin dialect. That was published in 1893. Its aim, as stated in the preface, was to furnish the young missionary with a Selection of terms which would enable him as soon as possible to teach and expound the Gospel of Christ. The same aim has been kept in view in the present edition. The scope of the work has, however, been enlarged by adding all the characters and expressions found in the Delegates' Version. In the Revised Versions of the easy wen-li, and in the Mandarin New Testament. By this means a vocabulary is provided for missionaries who use the we'n-li New Testament, as well as for those who use Mandarin only. The shape of the book too has been altered. Instead of being printed in quarto, its original form, it is now printed in a smaller size. Being thus made portable, it may perhaps be of service as a travelling companion, when its owner may not only need to find a new character or phrase, but to renew his acquaintance with some old ones. The Analytical Method has been retained; perhaps a few words of explanation and justification of its use may not be out of place. Without attempting to discuss the principle according to which at first Chinese characters were written, or how they assumed their present form, one fact is very evident, viz., that a large number of them may be roughly divided into two parts; and that these parts constantly recur in different characters. And a further fact is also apparent, viz., that what is in many cases the smaller part - the Radical - has been added with a view to give a general clue to one or more of the principal meanings of the character in question. The main part of the character - the Primitive or Phonetic - thus bears a slight analogy to the root of a word in English, while the Radical has a distant resemblance to a prefix or asu?ix. Hence, if the Primitive is known, the task of learning the character of which it forms a part is greatly simplified. This is evident for a two-fold reason. In the first place, all that isil preface.
