"Alternative spellings"Edit

Not clear to me why we have the pinyinizations as "alternative spellings" when they are already listed in the pronunciation secton. Brian Tvedt 01:23, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Because pinyin is not strictly a pronunciation system, but merely a way of spelling (or "romanising") Chinese characters. Tooironic 14:45, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Also adjective?Edit

Can't this also be an adjective in Mandarin (when used to modify a noun? 02:01, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

It can be used as an adjective like "phone" can be used in "phone case" —suzukaze (tc) 07:14, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
