金感謝,guá 寫 tâi-gí 金難, 猶閣咧學, 歹勢需要用 itaigi.tw 來翻譯。 昨昏用真濟時間,利用 -twblg.dict.edu.tw 佮 -itaigi.tw 來 揣出 guá kam-kah 上好 ê miâ-hō。But my Taiwanese is at grade-level, and just typing the previous two sentences took all of 20 minutes. Sigh. I'll need help from folks who are passionate about tâi-gí to help me revise these names.

Specifically, I am having trouble with the two grips named after Star Trek: Vulcan Grip, and Cupped Vulcan. How does tâi-gí deal with the V sound, if I were to try to rely on transliteration? Or other ideas?

And for grips I've tentatively named, do they make sense? These names reflect either the form (look of fingers), or the function (movement of fingers) of a grip. Each card from 一雙箸、萬攑法 links to an article describing the grip in details. Hopefully these draft names do make sense. Let me know please.

I have not yet named all grips. I will report back regularly here as I make progress, and incorporate your feedback.

And I'll be writing more in tâi-gí as well, as I practice more. Thanks!

Bó͘-khàn kài ha̍h.

感謝,will incorporate these tonight (US timezone).

無毋著,請看:Using vs not using the Thumb - Marcosticks

多謝,I will incorporate 夾 ngeh vs 撓 ngiáu in more write-ups. I do want to explain these Taiwanese names, in Taiwanese. I just need to learn to spell them or learn to use the right 漢字.

There are now more analyzed grips, than the 12 shown in that diagram. There are almost 30 named grips now on the page, shown as individual trading cards.

@chhoaniau, there was a whole large family of grips I initially neglected, in that 12-grip diagram. These are the "Lateral" grips: Lateral chopstick grips - Marcosticks. They are all 撓 ngiáu grips.

My next hurdle is finding the right name for "Lateral" grips. Some grips can go with their own names: Gangnam Style and Thumb Wrestler for instance. Others will need to have a Lateral prefix, such as Lateral Chick. Is 偏邊 phian-piⁿ the right word to use?

There is also a "family tree" view. I will make a version of the tree with Taigi names when we finalize names.

Thanks

I think it will help, when I give most a draft name, and draw them all onto a single picture. I will have around 24 grips instead of only a dozen on the picture. And I'll label them in Taigi.

I will give each a number, so that people can reference grips by number, and say something like, "#5 應當叫 XYZ,比 ABC 加真好".

I'll find a way to map regions in the picture to the corresponding grip page, which gives more information about why it's name that way.
