: How can I spell Antoinette with Chinese alphabet? Please help.
actually you can't because chinese language doesn't have an alphabet!
If you wan't to learn more about this you should read the FAQs at zhongwen.com
it's funny with your messages. There are some messages from you, but you never write something. Only your name and email adress but never anything in the message body. Why don't you write anything ? I can't understand. What's wrong ?
There is no chinese alphabet. Just read my other answer in this thread. Chinese Language has a total different concept.
This language has a totally differrent concept for writing. Each chinese character (there are thousands of them) has it's own meaning. There is i.e. a single character that means 'women', another one for 'man', one for 'peace', one for 'love' and so on. Chinese characters are basically pictographs, abstract pictures that symbolize a special meaning. You also know pictographs from traffic signs or signs in an airport, telling you where the toilet is, or the telephone, the elevator ... even if you are in a foreign country and do not know the language. On the other hand, the characters of the differents alphabets (the latin alphabet that we use here, the greek alphabet, the cyryllic alphabet that is used in russia, and others) have no own meaning, they only transport a sound. A 'B' is just a 'B', no special meaning, you just know how to pronounce it, that's all.
In the spoken chinese language, each character is connected with a syllable of the language. In the different chinese dialects (at least 8 main dialects) the pronunciation of the characters is different but the meaning of the chartacters is the same and a north chinese (speaking mandarin dialect) can read a newspaper in guangzhou (cantonese dialect) without problems but will not be able to talk to another person who only speaks cantonese. But if you go i.e. from england to france, you'll also find the same characters but if you read the word 'encre' you'll maybe not know that it is the french word for 'ink', even if you know the characters.
