Excerpt from Chinese Porcelain: Sixteenth-Century Coloured Illustrations With Chinese Ms. Text In the romanization of Chinese characters Sir Thomas Wade's scheme of orthography has been followed here. It is the system of transliteration which has been adopted by Professor Giles in his large Chinese Dictionary, and by Mr. Goodrich in his invaluable Pocket Dictionary and Peking Syllabary, and it is now very generally accepted by Chinese scholars. The consonants are generally to be pronounced as in English, with the exception of j, which is nearly the French j in jaune, the English s in fusion or z in brazier. The initials ch, k, p, t, ts, tz, are either unaspirated or aspirated. When aspirated, the aspirate which intervenes between them and the vowel following is indicated by an apostrophe in preference to an h, lest the English reader should pronounce ph as in triumph, th as in month, and so on. To pronounce ch'a, drop the italicized letters in much-harm, for l'a, drop the italics in hit-hard. The initial hs, where a slight aspirant precedes and modifies the sibilant, is a peculiar sound of the Peking mandarin dialect which can only be acquired by practice. The vowels and diphthongs are to be pronounced as in Italian, in accordance with the following table. The last vowel sound u, which only occurs with the initials ss, tz, tz', has no equivalent in English. In the diphthongal sounds each of the vowels should be separately pronounced in the Italian fashion; thus, ai, nearly our aye, is better represented by the Italian ai, in hai, amai; ia, by the Italian ia in piazza; ie is pronounced as in the Italian siesta, niente, &c. In speaking, the words of the limited vocabulary of about five hundred monosyllabic sounds are differentiated into four tones, or musical intonations, but these may be disregarded in writing, although all-important colloquially.
