TSkillet Posted December 5, 2003 at 05:03 PM Report Share Posted December 5, 2003 at 05:03 PM I went to someone's going away party last night (she was returning to Shanghai) and there were a bunch of mainland Chinese (and one Chinese-American - me) and the conversation topic drifted towards dialects too - everyone wanted to try their Cantonese pronuciation on me (for some reason EVERY Chinese person I know can say "Sik tang, mm sik gong" - meaning "I can understand Cantonese, but I don't know how to speak" I just thought it was interesting that Chinese Chinese people would be just as interested in localization and regionalization of language as a bunch of people on an internet Chinese language forum. That is all. Carry on. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
