♥ eastern ~ central ~ western dialects ♥ The 3 (Peb) branches of the Miao people. 1. Gho Xiong (eastern) - Boub Ghab Xongb 2. Hmu (central) - Bib Hmub 3. Hmong (western) - Peb Hmoob / Beb Hmongb comparing three sub-dialects (songs) within three Miao regional dialects of Xiangxi, Qiandongnan and Chuanqiandian , do they sound familiar? in terms of consonants? vowels? tones? Just thought I share my love for the various Miao languages/dialects. The Miao people have 30 to 40 sub-dialects and three main regional dialects spoken in China. All languages in the world have diversity. There is no such thing as one true dialect as some Hmong Nationalists like to claim. Languages change due to geography, migration and interaction with other cultures and people. note: Ayouduo speaks the central Miao dialect. The second song "Stepping on the Moon" is sung by Ayouduo in her native Miao dialect. note: Both Hmoob Ntsuab thiab Hmoob Dawb are part of Chuanqiandian.

The Irish Dialect - Speak with an Accent This lesson is designed to help the speaker affect an Irish brogue by employing two key changes: 'I' becomes 'uh-I' life, die, kind, night, right The short 'a' leans toward the short 'o' cat leans toward cot have, daft, back, crack, last, passed, add, ashes, act, Alison This monologue is Mortimer from "Pandora 2011: Accounts of the Cursed Shopping Center." I'm here about Alison. I don't know where to begin. I've had a little to drink. I know that Alison and you have this long history. You were a large part of her life for a stretch. And now you're here for her. I'm not daft. Right now Alison says she hates you, you should die, she never wants to see you again. That's what she says right now. But I know that one of these nights she'll be right where I am, looking you over with a nostalgic ache in her heart. I thought I'd beat her to the punch and come to see you first. I knew the whole story. I knew you left her. I always figured you'd come back. But there are parts of this that you aren't aware of. Alison cracked up when you left. She refused to eat. Had to be locked away for months. I met her last year when her mother passed, and Alison hadn't been with anyone else. In six years, no one since you. Now, I deal with grief every day. People walk into my shop in terrible states. But I see those people bounce back. Even during the brief process of arranging a funeral, people begin to heal. Not so with Alison. In my completely unprofessional opinion, the girl is shaky. There ...

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. DP: There's a kind of American linguistic insecurity which is very, very old. After all, we didn't invent English. There were the English who had a hold of it before us. And so, there is a kind of lingering American insecurity that, well, maybe with English we don't do the very best thing. 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 ...
