Hokkien


Hokkien is my mother tongue. It is a dialect of Chinese languages. I was told that it originated from Fujian area in China, although there is a difference between theirs and ours.

Being a dialect of Chinese languages, it bore some similarities such as different intonation for different meaning of the same word. However, I don't think we have our own writings. To write, we have to borrow from Mandarin.

Notes

  • There are many famous Hokkien songs to my surprise.
  • Some complex, rarely used terms are rarely passed on to the next generation.
