Mission Statement

The Phonetic Cantonese Language Institute is concerned with all aspects of the Cantonese language and all actions taken by the Institute are performed with two purposes in mind:

1) To create and popularize phonetic writing systems for Cantonese.

2) To help people use and learn Cantonese in any domain where language can be used.

The Institute’s interests include but are not limited to: collecting data on Cantonese usage in various contexts, investigating the use and limitations of Cantonese usage on the Internet, tracking evolving word usage over time, researching problems related to typography, analyzing the brush stroke aspect of the Chinese writing system and working on solutions for human-computer interface issues involving Cantonese.
