O-gio igos in aiyu jelly[edit]

Do you have the source for this etymological relation between the Taiwanese name and the Austronesian term. This could be interesting to investigate. Please reply on my talk page Sjschen (talk) 04:19, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks this will be very handy! Sjschen (talk) 00:00, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

鼠麴粿 or 草仔粿[edit]

How do you spell out 鼠麴粿 or 草仔粿 in POJ, is it "cu kak ge/ cao-á ge"? You seem to have a lot of knowledge in POJ and I hope you can help (talk) 22:42, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

chhú-khak-ké. chháu-á-ké. also possible: ké -> kóe. The kh, ph, th are the hard unvoiced aspirated consonants (like k, p, t in English). The b and g initials are reserved for voiced unaspirated. Hongthay (talk) 03:45, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Sanxia, Taiwan[edit]

Look, bloke. I just re-edited the "Sanxia" page that you saw fit to undo last time I made a change there. How in the hell do you come up with the idea that "Sanxia", which has the very logical and ordinary derivation of being "three" (san) and "river valley" (xia), is actually derived from some Spanish name of "Santo Domingo"?!?!?! As opposed to, say, the three fairly large rivers that flow through the region? Not only aren't they ANYTHING alike, but the bloody Taiwanese aren't going to name any damn thing after something foreign. You HAVE lived there, right? You DO know all about Chinese nationalistic and linguistic pride, don't you? You DO realize that they're about as likely to name their town after something Spanish as they are to allow "foreign monkeys" ("adogah" in Taiwanese) to immigrate en masse, right?


Hi, Is my edit incorrect? Why did you revert it? Is your preference Taiwanese over Mandarin? I see even official maps (I've got one at home) now use "Chilung". In my opinion, it's worth letting Anglophone people know, which pronunciation/spelling refers to which standard or which dialect. --Atitarev (talk) 22:55, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

I am happy with your new edit. No need to reply. Thanks. --Atitarev (talk) 05:05, 7 August 2008 (UTC)


Actually, we use /p, t, k/ for English "p, t, c/k". kwami (talk) 23:16, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Invitation to wikiFeed[edit]

Hi hongthay,

I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We have created a tool, called wikiFeed, that allows you to specify Twitter and/or RSS feeds from news sources that are interesting to you. wikiFeed then helps you make connections between those feeds and Wikipedia articles. We believe that using this tool may be a lot of fun, and may help you come up with some ideas on how to contribute to Wikipedia in ways that interest you. Please participate! To do so, complete this survey and follow this link to our website. Once you're there, click the "create an account" link to get started.

For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at We appreciate your time and hope you enjoy playing with wikiFeed!

Thanks! RachulAdmas (talk) 19:55, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
