To me, the most superior type of plaything is a novel mental trick which outranks any fresh electronic device. Currently, my play item takes form as an approach to recollecting how Chinese characters are pronounced – self-made and one that I am proud of. It could potentially surpass even my irresistible nacho recipe in terms of impact on civilization.

The issue of recalling how to write Chinese characters has received significant scrutiny, as evidenced by my review of Heisig and Richardson’s book. Conversely, the task of retaining knowledge on proper character pronunciation has been overlooked like a dutiful sibling. However, mastering accurate pronunciations is anything but simple – particularly due to Mandarin Chinese utilizing unique sound differentials absent in English; tone variation being an obvious example.

Most memory systems only link two concepts to represent the pronunciation of Chinese characters, including tone. My system does this too and can be a perfect companion if you’re using Heisig or something similar to remember how to write characters. It is also useful for memorizing spoken Mandarin words even if writing isn’t your priority (though I wouldn’t recommend it). Investing time in memorizing basic correspondences will pay off quickly – within days in my case. Check out this post for a complete method description and learn about Mandarin phonology as well!

It’s possible thanks to the Chinese principle of “one character equals one syllable” and the constrained sound system, which allows for a modest table listing all Mandarin syllables. My method is similar but modified, using influences from the “Bopomofo” system that represents every conceivable Chinese syllable with symbols drawn from an alphabet of 37 characters. Instead of displaying exotic-looking icons here, I’ll use their equivalent pinyin notation.

21 out of the 37 symbols can appear only at the beginning of a syllable:


Another 12 can appear only at the end of a syllable:


(…although certain syllables in both cases consist of a single symbol such as s [“si” in Pinyin] or ai, so that the beginning of the syllable is also the end.)

Three more symbols, representing -i--u-, or -ü-, can appear at the beginning, middle, or end. The -i- and -u- sound essentially like they would in Spanish, whereas -ü- sounds like a French “u” or a German “ü”.


zh+ang = zhang in Pinyin
u + ang = wang in Pinyin
zh + u + ang = zhuang in Pinyin
zh + (e)n = zhen in Pinyin
i = yi in Pinyin
j + i + (e)n = jin in Pinyin

If you’ve been attentive, it should have become apparent that I’ve listed only 36 of the symbols. The final symbol representing “er” stands alone and represents a separate syllable without combining with any other symbol.

In Mandarin, syllables are constructed using a finite set of combinations. This contrasts with the complex nature of English syllables which can contain multiple sounds such as in “strength”, “boxed” or “splashed”. It is difficult to compile an exhaustive list of English syllable patterns.

The Fundamental Method.

To start the process, create a mental image of an actual or imaginary person to represent each initial symbol. These representatives will be referred to as “personages.” I have provided some suggested assignments, but feel free to choose your own preferences:

Babe (Ruth) for b-
Peter (Pan) for p-
Mark (Twain) for m-
Frazier (Crane) for f-
Darth (Vader) for d-
Tarzan for t-
Noriyuki (Morita) for n-
Leonardo (da Vinci) for l-
Groucho (Marx) for g-
Karl (Marx) for k-
Herman (Munster) for h-
George (Washington) for zh-
Charlie (Chaplin) for ch-
Sherlock (Holmes) for sh-
Ringo (Starr) for r-
Zach (Galafianakis) for z-
(Christopher) Columbus for c-
Sam (Spade) for s-

I tried to pick these to be as visually distinctive as possible. I put the last names in parentheses because I recommend you get on a first-name basis with your personages. You’ll be spending a lot of time with them. Notice everyone on the list is male; also I left out j-q-, and x-. The reasons for this will become apparent in due time. The names are a clue to the associated sound: Babe for b-, Groucho for g-, and so on. This “clue” will actually be important only in the early stages of use—eventually (pretty soon, really) you will learn the correspondences by heart anyway.

We also need to introduce a new “null” initial symbol, which I will denote Ø-. So, for example (b- + -ao) gives you bao but (Ø- + -ao) gives you plain ao. This null symbol also gets an associated individual:

Ø- Albert (Einstein)

We might as well go ahead and introduce the “null” final symbol, denoted –Ø. So (s- + -ao) gives you sao but (s- + –Ø) gives you plain s (which is, however, written “si” in Pinyin).

(Now I have to interrupt myself to emphasize an important point: the “i” in Pinyin “si” is nothing like the “i” in “yi” or “ji”“Si” is pronounced more like “sz” than English “sea”. Same for “zhi”“chi”“shi”“ri”“ci”“zi”. If you don’t understand this point then go back and ask your Chinese teacher about it, because it will wreak havoc with your Chinese pronunciation. The Pinyin symbol “si” is written with just the “s-“ symbol in Bopomofo. To help keep this point in mind, I’m going to use parentheses to write it like this: “s(i)”“zh(i)”, etc.)

Now the do-it-yourself part: for each of the twelve final symbols -a-o-e-ai-ei-ao-ou-an-(e)n-ang-(e)ng, and  –Ø, choose a familiar place—a house, a restaurant, or a hotel. You will have to exert the modest effort to remember which places go with which symbols. I can’t do this part for you because they need to be places familiar to you. (This is a point about the “memory palace” that many people seem to miss.) But for the sake of explanation we’re going to pretend with a few examples:

Ø your own house
-a the Plaza hotel in New York City
-e Maxim’s restaurant in Paris
and so on….

(We lump -e and  together because these just happen never to appear in the same situation.) Now each syllable can be visualized as an image of a particular personage in a particular place. For example:

ba = b- + -a = Babe Ruth at the Plaza Hotel.
zha = zh- + -a = George Washington at the Plaza Hotel.
zh(i) = zh- + Ø = George Washington at your house.
zhe = zh- + -e = George Washington at Maxim’s.
ta = t- + -a = Tarzan at the Plaza Hotel.
a = Ø + a = Albert Einstein at the Plaza Hotel.

We can summarize all the combinations (so far) of initials and finals in a table:

-a -o -e -ai -ei -ao -ou -an -(e)n -ang -(e)ng
Albert Ø- er a o e ai ei ao ou an en ang eng
Babe b- ba bo bai bei bao ban ben bang beng
Peter p- pa po pai pei pao pou pan pen pang peng
Mark m- ma mo me mai mei mao mou man men mang meng
Frazier f- fa fo fei fou fan fen fang feng
Darth d- da de dai dei dao dou dan den dang deng
Tarzan t- ta te tai tei tao tou tan tang teng
Noriyuki n- na ne nai nei nao nou nan nen nang neng
Leonardo l- la lo le lai lei lao lou lan lang leng
Groucho g- ga ge gai gei gao gou gan gen gang geng
Karl k- ka ke kai kao kou kan ken kang keng
Herman h- ha he hai hei hao hou han hen hang heng
George zh- zhi zha zhe zhai zhei zhao zhou zhan zhen zhang zheng
Charlie ch- chi cha che chai chao chou chan chen chang cheng
Sherlock sh- shi sha she shai shei shao shou shan shen shang sheng
Ringo r- ri re rao rou ran ren rang reng
Zach z- zi za ze zai zei zao zou zan zen zang zeng
Columbus c- ci ca ce cai cao cou can cen cang ceng
Sam s- si sa se sai sao sou san sen sang seng


Notice that certain of the possible combinations, for example *be, just don’t occur. This would mean, for example that Babe Ruth will never visit Maxim’s. Notice also that we have handled the oddball syllable er by arbitrarily representing it as (Ø- + –Ø), or Albert Einstein at your house. This saves us from having to create an entire new column of the table just to handle this one case.
This is the basic idea of the system. We still have some unanswered questions, though:

(1) What about those pesky tones?
(2) What about the intermediate symbols  -i--u-, and -ü-?
(3) What about the initials j-q-x-?

All to be answered in the fullness of time.

Handling Tones

First, question (1): we’re going to expand the image to include the tone for the syllable by refining the location:

1st tone: In front,
2nd tone: Just inside the entrance,
3rd tone: Any other location inside,
4th tone: In the bathroom.

So, for example George Washington at the reception desk of Maxim’s is zhe (2nd tone) whereas George Washington sitting at a table in Maxim’s is zhe (3rd tone).

More Enhancements

Let’s start by addressing question (2) and focusing solely on the intermediate sound -i-. Usually, in Standard Bopomofo practice, a syllable like “liao” would be represented as l- + -i- + -ao. However, we want to simplify this process and avoid working with three separate parts for each syllable. To do this, we combine l- and -i-, creating a new initial consonant li-. In order to differentiate between li- and regular l-, we introduce two characters: Lauren (Bacall) symbolizes li-, while Leonardo represents normal l-. Additionally, other symbols are also introduced.

Indira (Gandhi) for y- 
Brigitte (Bardot) for bi-
Paris (Hilton) for pi- 
Marilyn (Monroe) for mi-
Dorothy (Gale) for di-
(Mother) Teresa for ti-
Nancy (Pelosi) for ni-
Lauren (Bacall) for li-

Some points worth noticing: (i) This list is much shorter than the first, because f-, for example, never appears before -i-; (ii) These personages are all female, which will help you keep track of which initials have -i- and which don’t.

And now we can introduce the remaining initials:

Gidget for ji-
Katharine (Hepburn) for qi-
Hattie (McDaniel) for xi-

There was no point in introducing these earlier because (just as f- never appears before -i-) j-q-, and x- never appear except before -i- (or -ü-).

You might be curious about my decision to use Gidget for ji- instead of a name starting with “J.” I made this choice to prevent any mix-up between zh- and j-. While both sounds are similar to the English “j,” they are noticeably different in Chinese. Unlike j-, g- is not problematic because it never precedes -i or -ü, which differs from j-.

Substituting “G” for j- and “K” for q- has a historical precedent because there was formerly a *gi sound in Mandarin, but the g-sound grew softer before -i [resulting in ji], similar to the English “g” in giraffe or Italian’s ciao. The same applies to *ki and *hi. This is also why Peking used to be spelled as Beijing. However, once you have memorized this system of substitution, it won’t make much difference anyway.

So we can update our table with the new syllables (we’re not finished yet, though):

-a -o -e -ai -ao -ou -an -(e)n -ang -(e)ng
Indira y- yi ya yo ye yai yao you yan yin yang ying
Brigitte bi- bi bie biao bian bin bing
Paris pi- pi pie piao pian pin ping
Marilyn mi- mi mie miao miu mian min ming
Dorothy di- di dia die diao diu dian ding
Teresa ti- ti tie tiao tian ting
Nancy ni- ni nie niao niu nian nin niang ning
Lauren li- li lia lie liao liu lian lin liang ling
Gidget ji- ji jia jie jiao jiu jian jin jiang jing
Katharine qi- qi qia qie qiao qiu qian qin qiang qing
Hattie xi- xi xia xie xiao xiu xian xin xiang xing

The columns of the table are represented with the same places you already identified (all though you won’t need all of them for this table).

Final Pieces of the Puzzle

Next step is to handle -u-. Just as with -i-, we fold this into the various initial sounds to make a new series of initials bu-pu-mu-, etc. And just as before, we assign personages for each of the new initial symbols:

Wonder (Woman) for w-
Bugs (Bunny) for bu-
Popeye for pu-
Mickey (Mouse) for mu-
Fred (Flintstone) for fu-
Dick (Tracy) for du-
Totoro for tu-
Ninja (Turtles) for nu-
Lisa (Simpson) for lu-
Garfield for gu-
Kang (& Kotos) for ku-
Huey (Donald Duck’s nephew) for hu-
the Joker for zhu-
Charlie (Brown) for chu-
Shrek for shu-
Richie (Rich) for ru-
Ziggy for zu-
Casper (the ghost) for cu-
Superman for su-

This time I used characters from either comics or cartoons, to help keep this group distinct from the others. And here is the corresponding part of the table:

-a -o -ai -ei -an -(e)n  -ang -(e)ng 
Wonder w- wu wa wo wai wei wan wen wang weng
Bugs bu- bu
Popeye pu- pu
Mickey mu- mu
Fred fu- fu
Dick du- du duo dui duan dun dong
Totoro tu- tu tuo tui tuan tun tong
Ninja nu- nu nuo nuan nong
Lisa lu- lu luo luan lun long
Garfield gu- gu gua guo guai gui guan gun guang gong
Kang ku- ku kua kuo kuai kui kuan kun kuang kong
Huey hu- hu hua huo huai hui huan hun huang hong
Joker zhu- zhu zhua zhuo zhuai zhui zhuan zhun zhuang zhong
Charlie (Brown) chu- chu chua chuo chuai chui chuan chun chuang chong
Shrek shu- shu shua shuo shuai shui shuan shun shuang
Richie ru- ru rua ruo rui ruan run rong
Ziggy zu- zu zuo zui zuan zun zong
Casper cu- cu cuo cui cuan cun cong
Superman su- su suo sui suan sun song

You will need to keep Charlie Brown distinct from Charlie Chaplin, but if you think this is going to be a problem for you, you can always change one name or the other. You will notice some spelling oddities: for example, zhu- + (e)ng becomes zhong instead of *zhung, but these merely reflect the way Pinyin works.

And then, finally, we create a series of initials with -ü- and their associated representatives:

Aphrodite for yu
Neptune for nü-
Luna for lü-
Geryon for ju-
Cupid for qu-
Hermes for xu-

This time we use names from Greco-Roman mythology, to distinguish this series from the preceding three. You will notice that the Pinyin system drops the little dots over the -ü- in most cases. Once again, this is done only when there is no possibility of confusion. We keep the dots in nü-, because n- can precede both -u- and -ü-. We drop the dots in ju-, because j- can precede -ü- but not -u- (so you know the dots should be there even when not written). And Pinyin uses yu- to represent initial -ü- by itself.

Here is the final part of the syllable table:

-e -an -(e)n -(e)ng
Aphrodite yu- yu yue yuan yun yong
Neptune nü nüe
Luna lü lüe
Geryon ju- ju jue juan jun jiong
Cupid qu- qu que quan qun qiong
Hermes xu- xu xue xuan xun xiong

The last column in the table (yong, jiong, qiong, xiong) has one final trick up its sleeve. The pairing of “ju-” and “-(e)ng” doesn’t actually result in *jung since that isn’t a valid combination. Instead, it forms “jiong,” which strictly consists of (j- + -i- + -u- + -(e)ng). This clever shortcut spares us from having to invent four more characters representing sequences like (j- + -i-+ -u-) for our purposes. Although I can’t take credit or blame for this notion; Bopomofo’s creators came up with it most likely because they didn’t want to deal with such lengthy arrangements made up of four symbols at once!
