Accurate alternative pinyin and polyphones

Overview

The CJKI Chinese Hanyu Pinyin Database (CHD) is a comprehensive lexical resource covering over 600,000 entries of general vocabulary, technical terms, and proper nouns. In addition to its extensive coverage and high level of accuracy, the following special features help distinguish this resource as one of the most complete and accurate pinyin databases available for licensing today:

Main Features

Type and part-of-speech codes

Explicit codes indicate whether the headword is a technical term, personal name, general vocabulary, etc., as well as POS codes.

Classical Pinyin coverage

Covers classical pinyin, and distinguishes pinyin based on meaning whether the word is read in the classical pronunciation as opposed to the modern one.

Attention to complements

Neutralized pinyin for complements, as in 看起来 kànqilai, versus the full tone in ordinary usage, as in 起来 qǐlai.

Attention to neutral tone

Neutral tones based on the actual usage, such as the tone for 生 in 学生 xuēsheng versus in 大学生 dàxuéshēng.

Polyphone coverage

Covers all polyphones, such as 东西 dōngxī ‘east-west’ versus 东西 dōngxi ‘thing’.

Alternative pinyin

Neutral tone with alternatives, such as 因为 yīnwei versus yīnwèi.

This document outlines the special features listed above, with illustrative examples.
