Chinese Characters

Each Chinese character represents a monosyllabic Chinese word or morpheme.There are two writing systems for Chinese characters. The traditional system, used in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Chinese speaking communities (except Singapore and Malaysia) outside mainland China; The Simplified Chinese character system, developed by the People's Republic of China in 1954 to promote mass literacy, simplifies most complex traditional glyphs to fewer strokes, many to common cursive shorthand variants.

The entire Chinese character consists of over 20,000 characters, of which only approximately 10,000 are now commonly in use. However Chinese characters should not be mixed up with Chinese words; since most Chinese words are made up of two or more different characters, there are many times more Chinese words than there are characters. A well-educated Chinese reader today recognizes around 4,000–6,000 characters; around 3,000 characters are required to read smoothly a Chinese newspaper.

The Chinese language has spread to neighbouring countries in many ways. Vietnam, Korea and Japan each developed a writing system for their own languages, but initially based on Chinese characters. The pronunciations of Chinese words were also borrowed extensively into Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese, and today comprise over half of their vocabularies. Chinese is first known to have been written in Latin characters by Western Christian missionaries in the 16th century.

Spoken Chinese

Putonghua (Mandarin) is the official language used by the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan), and Singapore. Some dialects of Northern China may have as few as 3 tones, while some in Southern China have up to 6 or 10 tones, depending on how one counts. One exception from this is Shanghainese which has reduced its set of tones to a 2-toned pitch accent system.
