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.

      Good work, Hollie & Nora: Some awesome audio clips! I’m pleased that the diverse sounds you managed to record (just using phones, right?) sparked many insightful observations/memories and studio discussions… really glad that you enjoyed focusing on the audio side of life (just for a while). It made for a different (unique) listen. Big thanks again for some compelling audio clips and intelligent conversation.

        Thank you! We really did have a great time wandering around with our phones recording like spies. There were several very typical sounds that we didn’t catch, but maybe we can make an encore episode in the future to fill in the gaps. It was a great question, so thanks for that! 🙂
