Abstract

The focus of this chapter is on the utility of Pinyin as a learning aid in the acquisition of character-based reading. Once mastered, Pinyin provides the learner with a means to pronounce new characters. The prevalence of Pinyin-based dictionaries means that learners can use alphabetical order to look up unknown characters (rather than identifying radicals and counting strokes). Thus it has the potential to speed the day when children become independent readers, able to read a broad range of materials and look up characters they don't already know.
