A nice little dictionary

客家語基礎語彙集 by 温 戴奎 (オン タイ ケイ On TaiKui/Wen Taikui) is a dictionary of basic vocabulary in the Meixian dialect of Hakka (中國廣東省梅縣客家方言) and geared towards a Japanese speaking audience. The author has created a romanisation with similar features to Pinyin used for modern mainland mandarin putonghua, but modified with non-pinyin characters to cope with the sounds of Hakka.

After a short introduction and outline of the romanisation used, the dictionary entries are arranged alphabetically according the romanisation scheme, and further arranged by tone then by individual entry compound word syllables.

The layout is formed by three columns of data, the first gives the Hakka word or phrase in Chinese characters, followed by the Hakka pronunciation in 温’s romanisation, and finally a Japanese gloss or equivalent Japanese phrase for the entry (without furigana). The author has supplied many dialectal characters for Hakka, which taken as placehold rather than as a standard character for that word syllable, if it is a dialectal word.

This work should not be confused with an earlier work by Mantaro (Joseph) Hashimoto 橋本慢太郎 1972 of a similar or exact same name.
