200 sentences in 6 Hakka dialects from Taiwan

I posted that on Minnan/Hokkien forums. I don't think it's a good idea to duplicate posts, so I'm posting a link to the thread here:

It's pretty awesome, thanks again for these Futurespy. I'd like to get back into Hakka some day. Southern Taiwanese Si-yen was originally my dialect of choice, but there is something really tempting about Raoping,or indeed any dialect in which 水 is read as "fi"!

I guess I may go for Hoiliuk next time, though (at least for speaking). The idea of eating PHON instead of FAN, and speaking VOI instead of FA/VA really appeals to my Early Middle Chinese fetish. :mrgreen:

I'd be tempted to learn one of those dialects as well, but I guess it'd be too hard to find speakers. I had someone online to help me with Hoiliuk before, but he disappeared. Since I already have a few materials for Siyen (even a Little Prince bought by mistake) and all Hakkas I know (also the old lady who's half Hoklo half Hakka) speak it, and apparently it's closer to Hakka from Sabah and Moiyen, I guess that's what I'm going to try to learn after all...
