For every language when speakers scattered, variation appears. Different people recorded their language with different tools, and thus different text variaties or scripts appeared. This is the same for Babyish. Such deviation started when some of the speakers moved from Kowloon to Sheung Shui, and some moved from Hong Kong Island to Toronto. New speakers inherited their original tradtional and variation in speech, and thus became a new dialect.
At this moment, we have the following dialects:
- Babyish languages
- Sheepnese (Biggest population, 6 vowels, Hong Kong & Toronto)
- Babyish (Claim to be the norm, 5 vowels, Hong Kong & Toronto)
- Pearlish (Dying language)
- Muimuiish (old name "Sheungshui-Muiish", mostly at Chicago & Boston)
- Muijüish (old name "KennedyTown-Muiish", mostly at Northwest of Hong Kong Island)
- Tsukikoish (mostly at Toronto)
Most of them uses the Latin scripts for transcription now. There used to have other scripts, like the geometrical script for Babyish in Babycaseny and Lœ Bī Kontri, as well as the "Arabic-like" Tsukikoish script, inspired from traces of rubber band on blackboard.
