Any good resources for Taishanese/Toisanwa/台山話? Hi all! I have been studying Cantonese for about a year and half, but my husband's family speaks mostly 台山話 and I want to be able to understand them better. Does anyone know of any resources for learning 台山話? Thanks!

This is also known as Toy-san, a strictly oral language that only about 3 million people speak. I have also met people who speak the language, including co-workers but since there is no written language and no uniformed pronunciation, I would imagine material would be hard to find.
