Where Do The Tone Marks Go?

When starting to learn Chinese, you will notice that there are tone marks in pinyin. But what if you don’t know where to put the tone marks? This infographic will help you.

The rules are:

  1. Vowels (a, e, i, o, u, ü) get the marks.
  2. “a” or “e” always gets the tone mark. (There is no Hanyu Pinyin that contains both a and e)
  3. If you see “ou” or “uo”, then “o” gets the mark.
  4. The final vowel gets the tone mark in all other cases.
