comment Character 瞓: where did the pronunciations come from?
I haven't had the chance to look into this yet, but will provide an update once I've done so. You could also pose this in its own question so that others can chime in.

comment Character: “Kei” For “To Go” (去) In Sichuanese
@StumpyJoePete I mentioned other examples in my answer here: chinese.stackexchange.com/a/10764/166 However, I hadn't looked further into the pattern of which ones remained /kʰ/. At a cursory glance it seems like most of them became /h/ (or eventually /f/ in the case of /kʰu/), though there are a few that didn't. Many words that have the /kʰ/ initial in Cantonese currently actually evolved from other initials, such as /g/.

The Cantonese pronunciation is actually heoi, not keoi. A lot of words that historically had the /kʰ/ initial ended up having an /h/initial in Cantonese.
