The description of Shanghainese Basic Phrases

Military-related basic phrases for foreign language learners of Shanghainese (沪语/上海言话), the largest variety of Wu Chinese (吴语), with audio, Romanization, and Chinese script. Use this app to select an English phrase and view its translation and how to pronounce it in Shanghainese. Texts are given in Simplified Chinese script.

This app uses modified Wu Association Romanization. High tones are induced by voiceless initial consonants p(h), mh, f, t(h), nh, lh, tz, ts, s, c(h), sh, k(h), h, and ∅, and low tones are induced by voiced initial consonants b, m, v, d, n, l, z, j, zh, g, ng, hh. For more detailed explanation of the Romanization system, please visit

This app was originally developed as an entry to the 2010 CIO/G6 "Apps for the Army" competition, and it is based on the modules publicly available online from the U.S. Defense Language Institute. Content edited and arranged by Percy Wong; app development by Robert Theis.
