How to use the Pinyin Dictionary

Pinyin Dictionary is a great way for you to search for words or phrases you have heard or where you only know the pronunciation but not characters or tones. The search works as follows:

  • In the search box below, enter the pinyin you want to search for
  • If you want to search for "we" for example, enter "wo men"
  • To make the ü compatible with international keyboards, please use v instead
