: How was "yeung" translated/created originally. "eu" has no sound in spoken English. It is possible that it was based in German originally.

i think it's from dutch. the 'eu' exists in dutch language and it's the same as the cantonese one. i don't know how 'yeung' is pronounced exactly, but my guess it's either with the 'eu' or 'ui' (sharper) - both sounds also exist in dutch

cyril.
