I am here to study languages, mostly to improve my English, at the meanwhile to edit or fix some words and phrases. The User Page will be used for self-introduction and keeping important logs.

I just realize that I cannot handle pinyin correctly, not just due to the input methods. Besides, Chinese is subtly.

About Chinese Adjectives edit

  • It is better to put a 的(de) at the end of every of them, which is an explicit indication of being an adjective. Without 的(de) a word can function as a noun, or maybe implicitly an adverb.
  • In practice, it is complicated. For example: good,
He is good. 他是好的
A good man. 一个好(的)人。

About How to Input Pinyin Characters edit

Two simple solutions.

  • You can use websites, e.g. or Google Translation to type in Chinese once, then copy the pinyin and the Chinese characters and paste.
  • Using a extended keyboard layout. Here it is English (US, intl. with dead keys) layout with a compact standard English Keyboard (only the left part) under Linux/Ubuntu.
    • This layout of keyboard has four levels of keys, usually two levels with shift to switch. To use the third level, hold the right-alt. To use the fourth level, hold the right-alt and shift.
    • For pinyin, there are four tones for one vowel. For example for o, there are ō, ó, ǒ, ò.
      • ō: first tone with a macron, right-alt + right-shift + 3/fourth key in the second row, release and then press o.
      • ó: second tone with a acute, right-alt + o.
      • ǒ: third tone with a caron (not a breve, which is round), right-alt + right-shift + ./period, release and then press o.
      • ò: fourth tone with a grave, `/first key in the second row + o.
    • References:
    • ...It is so complicated and easy to make mistakes, so I suggest you to use the first method.
