A Chinese Syllabary Pronounced According to the Dialect of Canton (粵音韻彙) is a book written by Wong Shik-Ling (黃錫凌) within a few years before being published in Hong Kong, 1941. It is one of the most influential books on the research of Cantonese pronunciation. Many Chinese dictionaries later used Wong's Chinese character indices and system of phonetic symbols to denote the Cantonese pronunciation of Chinese characters. Because of its significance, the book has been reprinted many times after its first publishing.
