Heard pronunciation ㄍ丨(romanization: gi) recently in a dialect of south western mandarin.

I was trying to trace it together with something else.

Seems like Hakka pronounces 机/機 ㄍ丨but I couldn't really see much else.

What Chinese language(s) have pronunciation ㄍ丨(romanization: gi)?


Yes, 机 pronounce gi(pin yin) in Hakka. But not all "Ji" pronounciation have the same reflection. e.g. 鸡 pronouce gie(pin yin) in Hakka, not gi.

Other examples I remember for now: 几,吉,记,季,寄,继,计,贵, etc. Of course, they have different tones.

  • I think / / represents IPA so it should be written /ki/ not /gi/ – Mo. May 31 '16 at 3:53
