Oh cool! I'm not going to read it now, as I don't want to get worng pronunciations into my head, but I'll join so I can read it when I'm more confident.

I was on a Japanese one, but it petered out.

What dialect are you trying for? They have a little sound snippet of each word in both mandarin and cantonese (and sometimes others). I actually have found it really useful in picking up nuances of sound that I don't get from the pinyin.

Er... Mandarin I think! That's probably the first thing I should learn :-)

Time for some Chinese haiku, methinks. That'll keep your readers quiet, they who think they can battle haiku en anglaise by commentary!
