Are 求 (beg) and 球 (ball) both written in pinyin as Qiú homonyms? I am trying to get the pronunciation for ball right. Are there authoritative homonym lists maintained somewhere?
Yes, they are. Any Chinese dictionary with Pinyin as index would be a good place to find homonym characters.– zyyMay 4, 2019 at 12:55
A fun fact: because they share the same pronunciation, chinese teenagers now type "ball ball 您" instead of "求求您" to express "i am begging you" when chatting online .– trisctMay 8, 2019 at 17:04
Yes, they are both written in pinyin as 'Qiú'.
