about the Cantonese district

Postby Sonya » Sat Oct 02, 2004 8:39 am

Hi,

I am Sonya. Does anyone know how to translate the Canatonese village of

O Saan and Hoy Saan district into Chinese?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,

Thank you

Dylan Sung

I'm sure it is the Toishanese pronunciation of "Toishan". I think it written as
泰山, but someone else will probably put me right.

go to this site for info on toisanese. the "tai" in taishan could mean another word, namely the one dylan sung suggested, but that is not the right one.
