What about 劉若雲's 惠州方言誌 by 廣東科技出版社 (1990/1991)? Is that book a good reference for the Huizhou dialect?
I have read some articles by 劉鎮發, and he makes references to a number of articles written by 劉若雲. I have read those articles, and found that the vocabulary and pronunciation is identical to my ancestral dialect.
There are some who propose that the 惠州方言 Huizhou dialect should be classified as a Cantonese sub-dialect (like 台山 Toi San), and not as a Hakka sub-dialect... comments?
