News Oct 2014 This dictionary has been updated to work better on mobile devices.

This online lexicon for Sheng is based on Sarah Hillewaert's MA thesis (Ghent University, 2003). At present, only a selection of words has been reworked for this online version by Sarah Hillewaert and Gilles-Maurice de Schryver. This work in progress is being created with David Joffe's dictionary compilation software TLex, and is online since 10 May 2004.
