I know, it's been way too long since I last updated. Life just got in the way. Anyway, I haven't forgotten about this, and I'm just slowly working my way back into learning Chinese again and updating this site. As for the actual changes...
Once again, it's been a while since the last update. Today I spent a bunch of time thinking about the translations for "today", "yesterday", and "tomorrow" and I realized that everyone has their own way to say these words. I've added some more entries to try to cover all of the variations.
I gave a presentation at The Perl Conference last week about this app, so who knows, maybe this site will hit a tiny bump in traffic!
It's been a while since the last update because I've been a bit busy. I added a new section to the site that has lessons. Right now I just have two pages, one for numbers and one that is a reference to the different tones. Eventually I will make the numbers one longer and add more explanation to the tone page. I also made some smaller changes, like making the extra text for some of the english words larger. I've added more words and phrases, and I'm still working through my long list of words that I need to add.
I added some more words and phrases! I don't really have any updates this time as far as features are concerned, but I have a long list of words I want to add to the site, so I'm slowly working through those. Once I add enough phrases, I'll see if I can try to organize them better.
I've been thinking a lot about how I wanted to incorporate Phrases into the website, and I think I finally have a solution I like. Right now I only have 5 phrases (and one of them already existed in the Words) but there will definitely be more to come soon! I also thought the menu was getting a little cluttered so I moved things around a bit.
There are barely any resources on the proper tone change rules in Teochew. I'm basically just going by what I read in What TC Say, but I wish I could learn from something more 'official'. I am uncovering more Teochew resources in general though. A lot of them are super old, but I guess that's to be expected.Older >>
