Pinyin is a type of transliteration for the Chinese language, a tonal language, where accents are used to show tones. It is the official form of the Latin alphabet transliteration used for the People's Republic of China and most of the world. It is also the standard form of Chinese Romanization for the United Nations. Pinyin is also helpful to learn the Chinese language because it clearly marks the tones, which helps with pronunciation. Pinyin was invented in the late 1950s.
