The (G′/G, 1/G)-expansion method for finding exact travelling wave solutions of nonlinear evolution equations, which can be thought of as an extension of the (G′/G)-expansion method proposed recently, is presented. By using this method abundant travelling wave solutions with arbitrary parameters of the Zakharov equations are successfully obtained. When the parameters are replaced by special values, the well-known solitary wave solutions of the equations are rediscovered from the travelling waves.
