Abstract

This short guide is written for faculty and staff at institutions where they deal frequently with students from the People’s Republic of China and would like to do them the courtesy of not totally mangling their names. It is intended to be brief and user-friendly; its ambition is to get readers about 75% of the way to correct pronunciation and does not aim higher than that.

Keywords: Chinese Language, Chinese Names, Chinese Students

JEL Classification: I20, Y90
