Get Started

This grammar wiki is designed to be browsable and user-friendly, accessible to beginners while still possessing the depth that more advanced users will find useful. The best way to get started is to just jump right in and start clicking around. Not everything is finished yet, but content is continually being added. (If you'd like to contribute content, by all means, get in touch!)

Note that this wiki does make extensive use of Chinese characters. In order to save the time of the editors and direct it toward real content additions, we do not provide pinyin for characters. We realize that this makes the content far less accessible to beginners, but there is a solution: students of Chinese should install free browser extensions to handle the character issue. In this way, the burden is taken off of our editors' shoulders, and the wheel need not be reinvented with regards to this particular issue.
