Bbánlám pìngyīm

Bbánlám Hōng'ggián Pìngyīm Hōng'àn[1] (Chinese: 閩南方言拼音方案), Bbánlám pìngyīm, Minnan pinyin or simply pingyim, is a romanization system for Hokkien Southern Min, in particular the Xiamen version of this speech.[2]


Various names are used such as Bbínpīn Hōngàn (Chinese: 閩拼方案), BbínPīn or BP (Chinese: 閩拼). It's commonly known as Pumindian (Chinese: 普閩典) in Taiwan, named after the Mandarin-Southern Min Dictionary (simplified Chinese: 普通话闽南方言词典; traditional Chinese: 普通話閩南方言詞典; pinyin: Pǔtōnghuà Mǐnnán Fāngyán Cídiǎn) where the system is used, but the formal Chinese name is Southern Min Dialect Spelling System (simplified Chinese: 闽南方言拼音方案; traditional Chinese: 閩南方言拼音方案; pinyin: Mǐnnán Fāngyán Pīnyīn Fāng'àn).[3]


The BP alphabet adopts the Latin alphabet of 20 letters, 5 digraphs, and 5 diacritics to express the basic sounds of the Min Nan language:

bp capital letter A B Bb C D E G Gg H I K L M N Ng O Oo P S T U W Y Z Zz
bp lower case a b bb c d e g gg h i k l m n ng o oo p s t u w y z zz
