Mao's accent


Recommended Posts

I understand that Chairman Mao spoke Mandarin with a thick Hunan accent.

Since I've never heard the man speak, I was wondering if anyone knows whether there are any recordings of his voice available on the Internet. I'm curious as to what his accent was like. Is it hard for Chinese people to understand his pronunciation?

his girlish chirp must have been a premonition of the voice he would use as he screamed with pain while burning in hell.

Good example of the kind of pointless post that makes me want to press the big red deactivation button.

Now lets see if I get called a Maoist or a Fascist for this one . . .
