Zhuyin Table

This bopomofo table is a complete listing of all Zhuyin/Bopomofo syllables used in Standard Chinese. Each syllable in a cell is composed of an initial (columns) and a final (rows). An empty cell indicates that the corresponding syllable does not exist in Standard Chinese.

Finals are grouped into subsets ㄚ, ㄧ, ㄨ and ㄩ. ㄧ, ㄨ and ㄩ groupings indicate a combination of those finals with finals from Group ㄚ.

This table indicates possible combinations of initials and finals in Standard Chinese, but does not indicate tones, which are equally important to the proper pronunciation. Although some initial-final combinations have some syllables using each of the 5 different tones, most do not. Some utilize only one tone.

Equivalent Hanyu Pinyin initials and finals are listed next to their respective bopomofo initial and final. Bopomofo entries in this page can also be compared to syllables using the romanized Pinyin phonetic system in the Pinyin table page.

There are differences between what syllables are listed in bopomofo tables and those that are listed in some pinyin tables, due to the few standardization differences of a few slight characters between the mainland standard Putonghua and the Taiwanese standard Guoyu. For example, the variant sounds 挼 (ruá; ㄖㄨㄚˊ), 扽 (dèn; ㄉㄣˋ), 忒 (tēi; ㄊㄟ) are not used in the Taiwanese standard.

Note that the zhuyin ㄩ directly maps to Pinyin ü, except for the combination ㄩㄥ where it maps to Pinyin iong.

Famous quotes containing the word table:

    When you got to the table you couldn’t go right to eating, but you had to wait for the widow to tuck down her head and grumble a little over the victuals, though there warn’t really anything the matter with them. That is, nothing only everything was cooked by itself. In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
