Note: In Wiktionary, tone sandhi is indicated by hyphen -. I don't know whether we should use the practice here.GZWDer (talk) 20:00, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

The usage examples of this romanisation and all romanisation systems below can be found in English Wiktionary. I have excluded Wiktionary invented systems.--GZWDer (talk) 20:13, 16 July 2018 (UTC)


  •   Weak oppose Wouldn't it be better to have single property transliteration with qualifier instance of (P31) pointing to item with specific romanisation? That would serve for all languages with transliterations. I don't think that's a good idea to create property for every transliteration separately. KaMan (talk) 07:00, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Per above, and just use transliteration (P2440) (some values) with qualifier determination method (P459) Jyutping (Q649913) is already enough. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 16:05, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose transliteration should be treated as a spelling variant -- Duesentrieb (talk) 20:33, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
