Tâi-ôan-ōe / Taiwanese

I found an interesting website today called Tailingua, which provides a good, clear introduction to the Taiwanese language (Tâi-ôan-ōe). It includes information about the language, the numerous methods used to write it, and explains how to set up your computer to write Taiwanese using Peh8-oe7-ji7 (POJ), the most popular system for writing Taiwanese with the Latin alphabet. There is also a list of books for learning Taiwanese, links, and a blog.

Other sites with information (in English) about Taiwanese include Talking Taiwanese, Intermediate Taiwanese Grammar, and Glossika.

    Interesting source! Thanks for sharing.

    It’s nice to find a site about Taiwanese that is almost completely objective and isn’t filled with Taiwan Independence movement propaganda.

    Thanks for mentioning the site, Simon, I appreciate it. Having just started out there’s a lot of information still to go up there and I welcome suggestions for future content. The next priority is some sound files once I have worked out an efficient way to include them.
