Phonemic Pīnyīn (Īnsù Pīn·īn)

Phonemic Pīnyīn is an alternative way of writing Mandarin Chinese devised by Michael Peter Füstumum, who is learning Chinese, and who thought this would make it easier to read and write phonemically. It is based on Hanyu Pinyin, the standard Romanization for Mandarin used in China.
