Pinyin fragments - what / where?

Maybe a stupid question from me :sweat_smile: but what is this site’s homepage referring to when it refers to Pinyin fragments ?

Pinyin fragments we’ve made to make sure you never mix up a tone again”

Not at all a stupid question :slight_smile:

I use the term “pinyin fragment” as an alternative way to describe what our sound items are: you need to combine sound items in order to derive the pinyin for a character/word.

This is more evident with our pinyin chart – hence the term “pinyin fragments”

I suppose it would just be better to substitute “Sounds” in there :sweat_smile:

Thank you! That makes sense. It had occurred to me whether the text actually meant sound items but then I thought it refers to 80+ Pinyin fragments but there are only 74 sound items (plus I was confused about the reference to getting the “tones” mixed up)! :face_with_monocle: :sweat_smile:

You’re right :thinking: I’ve updated it to reflect the number of sound items, as well as use the word “Sounds” too. Thanks for the report!
