Re: Penang Hokkien lessons

What can I say? First, kudos to everyone for working on behalf of "the Hokkien language". There is good, free information on Tye's website, just unfortunately filtered through an irregular and unreliable "system" of spellings, if it can be called that. Nothing personal, just that...

Re: "Malay Lexicalized Items in Penang Peranakan Hokkien"

Re: Medhurst, Si̍p-ngó͘ Im and Chiang-chiu Phonology

While I also observe a trend that things above all are supposed to look pompous and not necessarily beautiful, I’m not quite sure how that relates to the topic of script-unification. U would have to first agree -- only of your own free will -- that the "MOE Hokkien aesthetic" is based on ...
