This section contains no new sounds. Rather, it combines sounds you have already learned in Section 3, Section 4, and Section 5 to form new syllables. The pronunciation of the Mandarin sounds e, ei, en, and eng follow the same rules as in Section 5. Notice, however, that not every combination is used in Mandarin. (Those spaces are left blank in the chart.)
