This *Zhuyin table* is a complete listing of all Zhuyin/Bopomofo syllables
used in Standard Chinese. Each syllable in a cell is composed of an initial
(columns) and a final (rows). An empty cell indicates that the
corresponding syllable does not exist in Standard Chinese.

Finals are grouped into subsets ㄚ, ㄧ, ㄨ and ㄩ. ㄧ,
ㄨ and ㄩ groupings indicate a combination of those finals with
finals from Group ㄚ.

This table indicates possible combinations of initials and finals in
Standard Chinese, but does not indicate tones, which are equally important
to the proper pronunciation. Although some initial-final combinations have
some syllables using each of the 5 different tones, most do not. Some
utilize only one tone.

Equivalent Hanyu Pinyin initials and finals are listed next to their
respective bopomofo initial and final. Bopomofo entries in this page can
also be compared to syllables using the romanized Pinyin phonetic system in
the Pinyin table page.

There are differences between what syllables are listed in bopomofo tables
and those that are listed in some pinyin tables, due to the few
standardization differences of a few slight characters between the mainland
standard /Putonghua/ and the Taiwanese standard /Guoyu/. For example, the
variant sounds 挼 (ruá; ㄖㄨㄚˊ), 扽 (dèn;
ㄉㄣˋ), 忒 (tēi; ㄊㄟ) are not used in the
Taiwanese standard.

Note that the zhuyin ㄩ directly maps to Pinyin ü, except for the
combination ㄩㄥ where it maps to Pinyin iong.
