Chinese pinyin selection

August 05 at 05:03

I have noticed that when you click on words in the Chinese section, whatever system LingQ has to give pinyin to the word invariably selects the most obscure possible reading of a character. If there is one reading that is correct 98% of the time and another that is there 2% of the time, it will select the latter. If you are consulting outside sources for this it's not a huge problem but it could be quite confusing to beginners.
