Usage notesEdit

  • Using Roman letters in a Chinese running text is frowned upon by many purists and not supported by language policies of Chinese speaking areas, but a limited number of words in Roman script in all capitals have entered Chinese dictionaries and mainstream Chinese literature.
  • In transcribing speech synonyms are often used instead of "OK", e.g. (hǎo).
