Hi there! Are you romanising 陈语嫣 in Singaporean style? Or do you want a style that is more linguistically valid?

Tan Goh-Yeng would probably be a usual Singaporean ad hoc romanisation.

Dang5 Ghe2-iêng1 is the form official linguistic romanisation from the Guangdong Provincial Educational Department (according to Mogher anyway).

Hi ! Thank you for your reply

Yes we are looking to romanizing it so that we can spell it in dialect in her birth certificate.

I did use mogher as well to check on the pronounciation. However we couldn't figure out a best spelling way for the word 语.

Are there any other way to romanize 语?

Thank you for your help!
