EtymologyEdit

An irregular romanization of Chinese 陝西(Shǎnxī, [Land] West of the Shan Pass), with the first syllable from the Gwoyeu Romatzyh system and the second from pinyin, in order to distinguish it from the province of 山西(Shānxī, [Land] West of the [Taihang] Mountains) in atonal spelling. When tone marks are present, the single-A Shǎnxī is preferred.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ʃɑːnˈʃiː/, /ˈʃænˈʃiː/

Proper nounEdit

Shaanxi

  1. A province of China with its capital at Xi'an and including the Wei River valley and the fertile southern half of the Ordos Loop, comprising much of the Loess Plateau.
