The formulation of Hanyu Pinyin
Pinyin (Hanyu Pinyin in full name) was officially declared by the government of the People's Republic of China in 1958.
The explanation of Hanyu Pinyin
What is Hanyu Pinyin?
Hanyu Pinyin is a type of transliteration for the Chinese language, a tonal language, where accents are used to show tones. It is the official form of the Latin alphabet transliteration used for the People's Republic of China and most of the world. And it is the standard form of Chinese Romanization for the United Nations.
We should divide Pinyin text by words and write syllables connectedly, such as "I am a foreigner" should be written as "Wǒ shì wàiguórén" in Pinyin.
Syllable-dividing mark is the mark for dividing syllables, used before the syllables starting with vowels "a", "o", or "e", such as "pí'ǎo".
The application of Pinyin
To spell Chinese language
Phonetic notation of Hanzi
To spell Putonghua
There is no particular order to Hanzi, because Hanzi don't use Roman alphabet (i.e. ABC), so in indexing application is inconvenient. There are currently many indexing methods to Hanzi, including character stroke, character radical, Four-Corner System, Zhuyin, Hanyu Pinyin and etc. The structural problems of Hanzi make indexing difficult.
Solutions to indexing problems
Related governments together stipulate a unified Hanzi strokes and radicals standard.
Suggestion to use Pinyin as indexing method, because Hanyu Pinyin adopts internationally used Roman alphabet, making file order convenient. Pinyin uses phonetic, avoiding traditional and simplified character strokes non-unified problem.
Standardization of person and place names
Romanization of technical terms and code names
It is quite easy to learn Chinese by Pinyin which is a phonetic alphabet system to write Chinese. The grammar of Chinese is quite simple.
