The Eastern Min (Mindong) language is spoken by 9.5 million people and the Foochowese dialect (modern day Fuzhou city, the capital of Fujian Province) is used as the main standard for writing this language. The Foochowese Romanized alphabet is known as Hók-ciŭ-uâ Bàng-uâ-cê.

An Eastern Min Wikipedia edition also exists.

The words are based on the Dictionary of the Foochow Dialect, 3rd Edition R. S. Maclay, C. C. Baldwin & S. H. Leger, 1929.

A copy of the Foochowese Old Testament and Foochowese New Testament Bible can also be found online in PDF format. A full Unicode version of the text does not yet exist online although certain chapters have already been digitized at Wikisource.

  1. Thank you for making this tool. I am a speaker of Eastern Min myself I always struggled to type in romanization.

  2. I am curious: how did you transform the data from Dictionary of the Foochow Dialect? Manual input?
