Input Method by Ministry of Education of Taiwan

MOE Taiwan has finally put together a very useful input method for Hokkien in Chinese characters. I downloaded it, tried it and I am very happy with it. 1. It uses Tailo (not POJ) as supported by local government. 2. Words can be input without the tone, key in and hit space will do. 3. New vocabular...

Re: Some more Hokkien words

有身 is indeed widely used in Penang. I hear people say it. But in daily gossip, I think people tend to say 有囝 or 大-pat-肚 or 有 baby more often...... ^.^ Do you not know the correct chinese character or you are lazy to type it ? 大腹肚 I made a mistake, the character I held suspicion was 肚 and not 腹. 肚 s...

Re: Hokkien words in Thai

Ancient Chinese didn't care about distinctions between barbarians, only the distinction between themselves and barbarians. They used to lump all different sorts of people together in groups, and they still do to e certain extent. They still do. All 原住民 in Taiwan are called 高山族 in the 56 ethnic grou...

Re: Confusion about Dictionary of Modern Quanzhou Speech

嫷 or 媠 does not sound sui to me, although it has the same radical as 隨.

Would sui actually be something else like 穟 or 穗 or 瑞......

Re: Pronounciation of 還 - Return

Re: Pronounciation of 還 - Return

English has a standard that is taught internationally, regardless of how others mispronounced the words or other native english subdialects. I am not a linguist in any language. Do you mean only 1 set of spelling, 1 set of pronunciation, 1 set of usage of English is taught internationally ? Does th...
