Alphabet creation date and location set for Saturday, August 20th, 2016 at Kitchener City Hall at 2:00pm

On August 20th, 2016 at 2:00pm at Kitchener City Hall, in front of the fountain, there will be a meeting to create an alphabet for Cantonese. I will bring papers explaining the various sounds that exist in Cantonese, and will supply blank paper and writing utensils. Different people will draw symbols for different letters of the alphabet, and at the end, the people there will get together and choose the letters to use for the various sounds and add them up together to make an alphabet. We will test the alphabet out on some Cantonese phrases and make some adjustments to the letters if necessary.

The created alphabet will be the first version and will be posted to the cantoneselang.org website when completed. Perhaps more alphabets will be created in the future, but after this event, we can say that there is at least one available for use!

I hope to see you there!
