Support My Projects
Feel free to support several personal projects outside of my professional career
Some people have hobbies when they are not on the job. My hobby is my job. I love web development and everything about it. When I'm not at work, I'm also a hobby linguist and often find these two interests combine.
Projects for Support
The Bamum Project is an linguistic endeavour to help facilitate the normal usage of the Bamum script, a script that was created by the seventh King Njoya of the Bamum Kingdom, located in Cameroon.
I have already created the Bamum Project, a website focused on bringing awareness to my efforts to develop a keyboard and revised phonetic spelling of the Bamum language. Support would be used to help hire more staff from the Bamum Kingdom to help with the project, as well as budget for the development of a Bamum keyboard and iOS application.
If you are interested in helping financially support the Bamum Project, please contact me.
Learn Shandong Hua
The Learn Shandong Hua project is a slightly more personal project. My learning of standard Mandarin Chinese led me to learn other dialects such as Cantonese, Minnan and Shandong. My purpose of the Learn Shandong Hua project is to ensure that the Shandong dialect of Chinese has its own phonetic spelling.
I have created a phonetic version of the Shandong dialect which I have named "luyin", the dialect-specific version of pinyin for Shandong speakers. I will require additional support for two portions of the project: Project Adam and Project Eve. Project Adam is a project to record every possible word in the Shandong dialect with a native male voice and Project Eve is a project to record every possible word in the Shandong dialect with a female voice.
