    Hi all,

    I have a paper based Xinhua Dictionary 新华词典. I've noticed that the Xiandai Hanyu Cidian and the Guifan are from the same publisher, Commercial Press China. Does anyone know anything comparing these two, such as are they based on the same corpus, same amount of words? etc

    I'm thinking about getting the Guifan, but if there is a great deal of overlap maybe it's not going to be worth it.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Guifan is from FLTRP, actually, not Commercial Press. I believe the other two titles are actually from CASS and merely published by CP.

    Interesting to know, thanks for the info. It's easy to get them all mixed up
