Defending Cantonese dialect and identity in Hong Kong Hundreds of people have staged a protest in Hong Kong against what they claim is a bid to replace the widely-used Cantonese with Mandarin, China's national language. Protesters say protecting the dialect is crucial to the survival of Cantonese culture. Cantonese is one of 14 Chinese dialects and the third most popular with over 70 million speakers. Other dialects include Wu, Min and Hakka. Cantonese is used officially in Hong Kong and Macau, alongside Mandarin, which has 1.3 billion speakers. Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports. (Aug 02, 2010)
US Language Attitudes Discusses Dennis Preston's dialect attitude research (how do people feel about certain dialects). The Midland dialect is most commonly considered "standard" or "correct". ----- For this leg of the journey we're joined by linguist Dennis Preston. Dennis studies the strong opinions we seem to hold about what we believe is right or wrong in the speech of our fellow Americans.

On the other hand, there's American populism and a desire not to be stuffy, not to be too correct. I've been walking around this train asking people to draw on blank maps of the United States the areas where they think people speak differently. They don't just do dialect areas. They identify those areas where they think the least correct or the most correct English is spoken and draw circles around that. Nine times out of ten when you ask people to do this they go for either the US south, which is almost universally believed to be a place where bad English is spoken, or New York City. DP: But, New Yorkers, you're sure of. They don't sound like Pennsylvanians. Woman: Yeah, no, they saw "wawder". DP: They say what? Woman: "Wawder". DP: "Wooder". Woman: "Wawder". DP: Instead of. What do you say? Woman: "Water". DP ...
