comment How is the “r” sound pronounced?
I would add that for the case of ri you try to pronounce the i as in zhi or shi after the rrrrrrr

comment What words are used to express the sincerity when texting your friends in festival period,such as the Spring Festival?
Remember that questions here will remain for a long time, so "in this period" won't mean anything in the future, I would recommend adding new year to the title.

comment Why is it written LIU in Pinyin, when there's clearly an O sound?
Ok, I get the impression that it was just letter ecnomization and no other specific reason. About that there can't be a syllable without initial, what about 阿 a? I regard you, wu as simply not having initial, but whatever.

Is there a link to that Scheme?

comment When is the spelling and the pronunciation different?
When the u is really pronounced ü, as in qu, it's not that they chose a different letter, but just that the diaeresis is droppedfor simplification, because no real qu would happen in chinese, it's a bit confusing yes.

I know, it says how it's written. What I ask is why.

Ok, this says it happens, but why or what for is the question. Why liu, jiu, niu and not yu instead of you?

I agree with @Alenanno based on my little knowledge of Russian.

I don't expect Pinyin to be anything, I just study it. And this doesn't answer my question.

comment What's the actual difference between 文 and 语?
I know. It's just that in this examples, I actually knew for a fact that 文 and the left part of 语 did actually have meaning and weren't phonetic.

comment Use of 龙 in the idiom 车水马龙
@fefe: this is off-topic, but I agree with you so much that I don't really think 龙 should be translated as Dragon, just Long because they are two different creatures.
