Online Pinyin Input Method is based on the Hànyǔ Pīnyīn romanization. Hanyu Pinyin which is called Pinyin in short is based on the pronunciation of Putonghua or Mandarin and is the standard romanization system for Chinese. The system uses Latin alphabets to denote the initial and final of the character. For example, the initial of the character "酒" is j, and the final is iu, therefore the Mandarin syllable of the character is spelled as jiu. For the sake of convenience, the pinyin input method does not use tone marks.

There are 23 Initials in the Pinyin System, they are:
b 波, p 破, m 摸, f 佛, d 大, t 他, n 那, l 拉, g 哥, k 科, h 哈, j 機, q 氣, x 西, zh 之, ch 吃, sh 是, r 日, z 子, c 此, s 四, y 意, w

Also the 33 Finals:
a 大, ai 帶, an 單, ang 幫, ao 刀, e 德, ei 給, en 本, eng 風, er 兒, i 一, ia 家, ian 年, iang 良, iao 了, ie 烈, in 林, ing 冰, iong 窮, iu 牛, o 佛, ong 東, ou 否, u 不, ua 瓜, uai 怪, uan 管, uang 光, ue 決, ui 對, un 均, uo 多, uu/v

Unlike Hanyu Pinyin, finals like üan, üe, ün will be combined with uan, ue and un in this input method, thus characters like "決" will be spelled as jue instead of jüe, and character "圈" will use que instead of qüe. Moreover, those with ü as final will be spelled as uu or v, for example, the character "旅" can be spelled as luu or lv instead of lü.

This input method has Chinese characters, Chinese words and English words.

For those characters or words we have left out, please use the Add function to suggest, we will update periodically.

For basic instructions, please take a look at the Use section.
