[在线]福州话词典

Recommended Posts

Found this recently. Nice to see a Min branch other than 闽南 represented with an online dictionary!

http://cidian.cuobian.com/

 

I can't quite work out what romanisation is being used; it's a little bit like the Li Zhuqing Fuzhou-English dictionary one though.

 

For all those who want more resources, there is of course GnuDoyng's classic resource list and the official course for the Ministry of Education on Matsu, as well as the Fuzhounese programming on FZNTV (including the 福州话学堂 TV course and 攀讲 news).

Now that Cuobian is no longer with us... and neither is the 福州话学堂 TV course ...

We have this which is quite well-maintained. Also comes with an APP.

I've been looking everywhere for one of these! Thank you! I like to go to Fuzhounese restaurants but I was never brave enough to even attempt to use anything except Mandarin, since the Fuzhou dialect seemed so distant and elusive.

I'm actually interested to find out, what makes you think so. There are certain phonological things that make it sound exotic to many other speakers of Chinese varieties!

Two main features stick out like sore thumbs:

1) Diphthongs preceding codas (e.g. 'eing', 'aing', 'oung', etc.)
2) Vowel sandhi in addition to tone sandhi (e.g. /yŋ/>/œyŋ/)
