Where is Mandarin Spoken?

Mandarin Language History

In Chinese linguistics, Mandarin (pinyin: Guānhuà; literally "speech of officials") refers to a group of related Chinese dialects spoken across most of northern and southwestern China. Because most Mandarin dialects are found in the north, the group is less commonly referred to as the "northern dialect(s)." There are pronounced regional variations in pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar. A northeastern-dialect speaker and a southwestern-dialect speaker can hardly communicate except through the standard language, mainly because of the differences in tone. Nonetheless, the variation within Mandarin does not compare with the much greater variation found within several other varieties of Chinese, and this is thought to be due to a relatively recent spread of Mandarin across China, combined with a greater ease of travel and communication compared to the more mountainous south of China.

When the Mandarin group is taken as one language, as is often done in academic literature, it has more native speakers than any other language, nearly a billion people. For most of Chinese history, the capital has been within the Mandarin area, making these dialects very influential. Mandarin dialects, particularly the Beijing dialect, form the basis of Standard Chinese, which is also known as "Mandarin."

Chinese (hànyǔ or zhōngguóhuà ) comprises many regional language varieties sometimes grouped together as the Sinitic languages, the primary ones being Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese, and Min. These are not mutually intelligible, and even many of the regional varieties (especially Min) are themselves composed of a number of non-mutually-intelligible subvarieties. As a result, Western linguists typically refer to these varieties as separate languages.

Standard Chinese or Modern Standard Chinese, also known as Mandarin or Putonghua, is the official language of the People's Republic of China and Republic of China (Taiwan), and is one of the four official languages of Singapore. The phonology is based on the Beijing dialect. The vocabulary is drawn from the large and diverse group of Chinese dialects spoken across northern, central and southwestern China, which is also known as Mandarin Chinese. The grammar is standardized to the body of modern literary works that define written vernacular Chinese, the colloquial alternative to Classical Chinese. The name "Mandarin" originally referred to the language of the imperial court in Beijing...LEARN MORE
