Taishan Dialect[edit]

Comment moved from your User page. -- Gogo Dodo 03:39, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

I do not know how to send a personal message so here goes:

your facts are not correct due to the fact that you cited a fact with something from your own site, which of course would bias your opinion. Furthermore your studies will only benefit a certain group of people because although it is classified as one dialect, Taishanese, Taishanese also includes minor differences and therefore one common dictionary or study on it will not be accurate. Furthermore you should not base your findings on Kaiping dialect just because you grew up with that because of the fact that Kaiping and Taishan dialects are not the same. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hoisanpride (talkcontribs)

Salut, Aaron. Don't know if you're around these days, but I'd love for you to venture an opinion in Talk:Taishan dialect on whether the initial consonant in "lhaam" (three) is a voiceless alveolar fricative or not. (How many times do you get asked that question in a week? :-) Waitak 05:22, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Chin Gee Hee[edit]

Jmabel (talk · contribs) has been asking for my help a bit with Chin Gee Hee (see my talk page for details). To the extent that you have time and would be interested, I'd appreciate your input into whether there is such a thing as a standard Taishan transliteration and whether it, rather than pinyin Mandarin, should be used in that article. --Nlu (talk) 16:30, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Since Nlu's talk page is bound to be archived sooner or later, you might best see Commons:Image:Chin Gee Hee ideographs.jpg, Commons:Image:Chin Gee Hee ideographs 2.jpg, and Commons:Image:Chin Gee Hee ideographs 3.jpg for details. - Jmabel | Talk 17:19, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Yue vs. Cantonese[edit]

Hi Aaron,

I'd like to ask you your opinion about Taishanese vs. Cantonese.

We're having a debate over at Yue Chinese as to what to call that article. There is a group of Cantonese speakers who are adamantly opposed to anything involving "Yue", apparently primarily because it's the Mandarin pronunciation, and who want to call the article "Cantonese". One of the problems for me is that means we would say Taishanese is a dialect Cantonese at the same time we say Taishanese and Cantonese are barely intelligible. By saying it's a dialect of Yue, and that T and C are barely intelligible, we avoid the confusion. In your opinion, is saying that Taishanese is a dialect of "Cantonese" an acceptable presentation?
