Usage notesEdit

  • It may be used to specially write erhua (or the rhotic sound) in traditional Chinese, in contrast with (ér, “child”).
    • 1950, 林濤 (Lin Tao), 《定型化新文字》 (Dingshinghua Sin Wenz), 三聯書店:
      有人把拉丁化新文字的方案跟寫法看做神聖不可侵犯的東西,不准有一點儿改變 []
      There are some who believe that the Latinxua Sin Wenz scheme and spelling are sacred things that should not be violated, and that there must not be even the tiniest bit of change []
      r念“儿”只有“”“二”“而”這幾個字 []
      When r is read as , the only candidates are "child", "two", and "and" []
  • When used to represent erhua, it may be subscript.
    • 1968, 趙元任 (Yuen Ren Chao), 《語言問題》 (Problems in Linguistics), 臺灣商務印書館, page 83:
      固然平常念一個單字的時候,重音的音節在樂音上也是高一點,不過它不一定老是這個樣子。
      Admittedly, when pronouncing these a word, the stressed syllable is, musically speaking, a bit higher-pitched, but this is not necessarily always the case.
