Name[eedit | eedit soorce]

Bi regular Hanyu Pinyin rules, if tone marks arenae written, baith Shaanxi an the neighbourin province o Shanxi, tae the east of Shaanxi, shold be spelt "Shanxi"; the difference is in tone: Shānxī (山西) an Shǎnxī (陕西). Tae mak the difference clear athoot tonal marks, the spellin "Shaanxi" wis contrivit (follaein the romanization seestem o Yuen Ren Chao) for the province o Shǎnxī, while "Shanxi" is uised for the province o Shānxī. Shaanxi is the offeecial spellin on Cheenese Govrenment's offeecial web portal.[1] This maks "Shaanxi" the anerlie name o Cheenese provinces that hisnae been romanizit accordin tae pinyin rules.
