Proper nounEdit

Tâi-oân (POJ)

  1. 臺灣/台灣: Taiwan
  2. 臺員/臺圓: (historical) Tayoan (peninsula near present-day Tainan, Taiwan, as well as Taiwan itself)

Usage notesEdit

  • In isolation, the character "" is usually read as "oan" (e.g., 海灣). The reading of "oân" here is an exception stemming from the historical variants 臺員 and 臺圓, properly read as "Tâi-oân".
