PinYin (拼音)

If a character does not have consonant and is not the first character of a word, "'" must be typed at the beginning of its PinYin. For example, when you input the word 西安 (xī'ān, a city of China), you should type "xi'an", not "xian", as its PinYin code.

"v" is used to represent the vowel "ü".

The maximum length of PinYin code is 12 letters.
