Image from store WMWM - Chinese Pinyin Decoder
Description from store With the most native speakers in the world, the Chinese language comes naturally to a good amount of people. But to the rest of us laowai who want to master it, memorizing the thousands of characters required for even for basic comprehension can pose a hefty challenge. Currently, we consult textbooks and children's books to learn them, but it would be a lie to say that our eyes don't glaze over after meticulously reading Cinderella for the hundredth time. Add a fun touch of relevance to the learning journey by instead, learning characters by reading the news or somebody's opinion on the latest cars. Check out what's in fashion, pick up idioms, and immerse yourself in real-life conversations that go on a billion times a day. ★ - Pinyin is added right after the page loads. ★ - WMWM supports both simplified and traditional Chinese characters. ★ - Webpage titles are annotated as well! ★ - Transliterations are sourced from the Unihan database. ✘ - For the sake of being a quick and lightweight extension, WMWM does *not* support homographs, characters with more than one possible pronunciation. These characters, many of which are often used, should be learned separately. WMWM only displays the most common transliteration and aids learning of less common words. ✘ - WMWM cannot annotate pictures. Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Glitches?
