Welcome to the book website of Stephen Matthews and Virginia Yip's Cantonese: A Comprehensive Grammar (2nd edition), published in 2011 by Routledge. Here, we aim to provide audio-visual materials and references supporting our book and research on Cantonese linguistics in general. It is our hope that this website will benefit readers of our revised Grammar from all walks of life, including learners and teachers of Cantonese as well as academics and professionals whose work involves Cantonese.

The revision of Cantonese: A Comprehensive Grammar and the production of this website were fully supported by a grant from the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China ('Rethinking Cantonese grammar: typology, processing and acquisition', project reference HKU 748207H).
