Nice to see that some people still know to use whether instead of if...

Cantonese is not written in pinyin (well at least gwong2 dung1 waa2 is not pinyin, but jyutping, 粵拼).

comment Written Cantonese Pronunciation 2
"I just don't get reading written Chinese in Cantonese." doesn't compute. You're apparently talking about 2 different things at the same time. Written Chinese can be read out loud in Mandarin, Hokkien, Canto, etc. It's not a spoken language, and thus not bound to a specific version of spoken Chinese. HK peeps, when reading a newspaper out loud for instance, will pronounce each character in the Cantonese pronunciation. Doesn't mean it's Cantonese. Or Mandarin.
