Dictionary of Chinese function words


Several different dictionaries of Chinese function words (bilingual and monolingual) have been published in the past decades. As far as I understand, they provide a wider range of example sentences on how to use these function words than regular dictionaries.
Two examples of such dictionaries are:

实用汉语近义虚词词典. A Guide to Chinese Synonimic Function Words. (2013)
新编汉英虚词词典 (1999) and its predecessor 汉英虚词词典 (1992).

Particularly the 2013 one would be tremendously useful to have in Pleco. Please consider contacting the publisher ;-)

We'll investigate, thanks - 实用汉语近义虚词词典 looks to be from PKU press which we've actually never done business with before.
