Use this tool to add tone marks to pinyin or to convert tone number (e.g. hao3) to tone marks.

Although you can use the red buttons to add tone marks, we highly recommend you use the number method (e.g. hao3) for speed and placement of the accent above the correct vowel. [Hint: Type "v" for "ü"]
Note: You do not need to use this tool to enter pinyin in this dictionary.

Description

Learning characters can already be a challenge, wouldn’t it be simpler to learn those two-character combinations?

Here’s the second edition of our Bigrams poster that can help you learn ANOTHER 322 of the most commonly written Bigrams!

Here’s how it works: As anyone who has studied Chinese knows, any given single Chinese character nearly always has multiple meanings, often with completely unrelated definitions. Take the word “经” (jing1). Its definition includes ‘sacred book’, ‘to pass through’, ‘to undergo’ etc.

Instead of “经” (jing1), you will be able to learn the more commonly found bigram “已经” (yi3jing1) which has one meaning only: already. Learning these bigrams first can be a great tool in understanding the general meaning of the individual character.

You can learn more about bigrams by reading our article The Chinese Bigram.

You can also use the poster alongside our Written Chinese Dictionary app to enhance your existing studies.
