# 1. About Lingnaam Jyutjam

Lingnaam Jyutjam 嶺南粵音 (literally "Phones of Yue Language in Lingnan") was founded in 2017, initially as a QQ group by fellows who shared a common interest of Yue language (opens new window), with the original intention to build a platform for Yue language studies lovers.

In the summer of 2018, Jyutdict 泛粤典 was prepared for construction and another group Jyutdict Editorial Board was subsequently established. In this case, the key members of Lingnaam Jyutjam could be defined as those in the group Jyutdict Editorial Board to contribute to the compilation of Jyutdict and furthermore, to the video production on Lingnaam Jyutjam Bilibili Account to a certain extent.

At present (2023), the key members of Lingnaam Jyutjam are mainly involved in the following subprojects (not for profit):

  • Compilation and building of an online dictionary platform for Pan-Cantonese words including pronunciations and meanings: Jyutdict
  • Videos making of fun facts about Yue: released on Bilibili (opens new window)
  • Research on the phonetics, phonology and romanization schemes of Yue varieties and the design of Jyutping++ (J++)
  • Collection of Yue language resources from all over the world

We have been organising our annual offline meeting and academic forum.
