Passover 4 questions in Mandarin with Pinyin
An unusual question. I was wondering if anyone has come across or seen a link to the traditional Passover 4 questions in Mandarin with Pinyin. I have been looking for a number of years but always strike out in my search. I recently purchased the book 300 Ways to ask the 4 questions and it does have the questions as characters but instead of using pinyin it uses a loose transliteration style instead (oh, sad day!!! ). My newbie skills aren't good enough to break all the characters down into the correct pinyin. I tried a new cool app called Waygo that translates characters into pinyin but it keeps giving different answers and there is no way to isolate characters, it tries to do it a half line at a time.
Anyone know of any resource that has the pinyin as well as the characters?

This site has the pinyin for the introductory question:
...which it gives as:
Chinese: Wei Shenmer Zher gar Yewan yu: chi: ta yewan bu: tong?
...but I think the pinyin is slightly erroneous. I would render it as:
Weishenme zhege yewan yu qita yewan butong
..in Characters that is:

meir mate, I hope that helps. If you need help with translation, or want to post a picture of the 4 questions in Chinese from your book, or need help with anything else, don't hesitate to ask. שָׁלוֹם

Thanks so much Bababardwan. Sorry I missed your reply. I am not living in China (though I wish I was!). I will try to upload a picture of the page from the book and perhaps that will help. I saw yet another version and wound up using that since it had pinyin as well (the book one is just a loose transliteration).
