Mandarin Chinese Romanization:
Comparing Yale to Pīnyīn and Wade-Giles

This is the third of three tables you can use to look up a how a Mandarin Chinese sound is spelled with roman letters and ompare how it is spelled in two other major romanizaion system—especially useful if you run across a spelling in a system you're less familiar with.

On this page, the focus is on the Yale system.

Click a letter in the index just below to view the sounds it begins in the Yale system (alphabetized in the first column), along with the corresponding spellings in the Pīnyīn and Yale systems.

NOTE
You can also look up romanization by the Pīnyīn system and Wade-Giles system.
