Taiwanese (Min dialect)

I am beginning a thesis which is going to be a phonetic analysis of
Taiwanese (NOT Taiwan Mandarin). What I have in mind is going to do a
detailed analysis of the vowel and tonal system of the
dialect. Unfortunatly, all the information and references that I have
got so far are solely on tone. I in fact quite desparately need to
know where the reference(s) of Taiwanese phonology can be found and
obtained. Taiwanese is a Min dialect which phonological system should
be highly similar to Amoy spoken in Hsia Men on the South coast of
Mainland China. If there is sufficient responses, a reference list
will be complied and posted on the Linguist List.

Thank you.
