Alphabetical Pinyin Index Z

The Chinese symbols on this page include symbols whose pinyin spelling begins with the letter Z. Meanings, in English, are also included for more commonly used characters.

The characters are grouped alphabetically, and further organized by "final" symbol elements.

When using cangjie input methods:
The first part of a symbol is generally the top most, left most or outermost part of the symbol.
The final part is the bottom most, left most or inner most part of the symbol.

In each subsection I've grouped symbols which have the same (or similiar) endings together.

While this doesn't always mean that those symbols have related meanings, it may make it easier to memorize the character pronounciation because you can see characters with the same phonetic elements grouped together.

In some cases, the symbol may be a character in its own right and where possible I've included the meaning of that symbol (as well as its pronounciation).

The heading for each subgroup includes both pinyin and zhuyin "spellings" for that pronounciation.
The second line of each heading also includes the Gwoyeuh Romatzyh spelling for each of the four tones for that pronounciation.

The spelling of Gwoyeuh Romatzyh may make it easier to reproduce the correct sounds in Chinese a little bit more accurately.

For each entry, the meaning of the symbol is at the top of teach entry. It links to further alternate meanings for the same Symbol.
The Chinese symbol links to the cangjie input code for that symbol.
To the right of the Chinese symbol is its zhuyin phonetic spelling.
Below the symbol is the pinyin phonetic spelling.

Some symbols may have more than one pronounciation. If that's the case the entry will include a number that indicates how many alternate pronounciationes there are. Clicking on the link takes you to the next alternate pronounciation.

Two main differences with tone markings between pinyin and zhuyin is that pinyin uses a solid bar for first tone while zhuyin uses no marker for the first tone. Second tone is a rising line, third tone a downward pointing arrow and fourth tone a downward sloping line. The fifth "neutral" tone is indicated in both systems with a dot.
