Yue Phonetic Database

Covers over 300,000 Cantonese entries

Includes standard Jyutping romanization

All major romanization systems can be provided


CJKI’s Yue Phonetic Database (YPD) provides Cantonese readings for 300,000 compound words and approximately 80,000 readings and romanized variants for about 13,000 single Traditional Chinese characters.

YPD features phonemic transcriptions given in the standard Jyutping romanization, also available in up to ten Cantonese romanization systems (IPA accurate transcriptions also possible). The readings are ordered by frequency and/or importance, while flags distinguish common readings from rare ones.
