comment Looking for very common dialect words which have no Standard Mandarin Chinese hanzi characters
For the use of "C" and "O" for types of coffee in Singapore: they are actually Chinese characters in dialects. "C" is likely the character "鲜" in Hainanese (though there are other speculations) while "O" is from the character "烏" from Hokkien.
