Description

This database is not only comprehensive but also linguistically accurate. It is based on solid principles of Cantonese phonology and semantics, and takes into account the phenomena of polyphony as well as tone change, which is unpredictable and requires manual proofreading. It covers 300,000 entries, including 80,000 readings and romanized variants for the 13,000 Big Five single characters.
