Examples and Help
Example queries: hello, nihao, ni3hao3, 你好, rest*, zei*, *zei*, *茶, 英*公司, chinese *文, "to rest", bill -gates
Pinyin words should be entered without spaces, either with or without tone numbers: ni3hao3 or nihao.
The character ü can be entered as v instead.
The asterisk character * can be used as a wildcard to match zero or more characters:
will match any word starting with rest
, such as restaurant
will match any word ending with 文
, such as 中文
will match any word starting with b
and ending with g
, such as big
will match any word containing 中国
, such as 传统中国医药
Double quotes " " can be used to group search terms together:
will only match entries where to
directly follow eachother
The minus symbol - can be used to find entries without a certain search term:
will only match entries matching bill
but without gates
To match only Chinese characters, Mandarin pinyin or English definition, use: c:chinese p:pinyin e:english:
will only match entries with Mandarin pinyin you
'-', 'c:', 'p:' and 'e:' only influence the search term immediately after these prefixes.
When used with groups, they influence the whole group they prefix.
