Language on this website

In some places on this website, I wish to provide the Chinese alongside the English. I have therefore tried to clarify the language by writing in this order:

  1. English e.g. 'Jiaying University'
  2. Chinese traditional characters : Chinese simplified characters (if applicable)                                                e.g. 嘉應大學 : 嘉应大学
  3. Standard Chinese Pinyin (in bold) : Hakka Romanization (in italics)                                                    e.g. Jīayīng dàxué : Ga(1) yin(4) tai(4) hog(6)

So a page title might look something like this:

Jiaying University 嘉應大學 : 嘉应大学

Jīayīng dàxué : Ga(1) yin(4) tai(4) hog(6)

and a phrase within a sentence might look something like this:

...the plum blossom, 梅花 méihuā : moi(2) fa(1),...

If this system is hopelessly unclear please do let me know and I will try to improve it!

I have opted to put the Standard Chinese Pinyin first because it is much easier to find the Pinyin to match Chinese characters than to find the equivalent Hakka Romanization.
