Cantonese is the lingua franca which originates …

Cantonese is the lingua franca which originates from the Guangdong province in China, one variety of the Chinese language still widely used today. Not only is Cantonese the main language in Hong Kong and Macau, but it is spoken by about 80 million people including South East Asia (Malaysia, Vietnam, etc.) and many oversea Chinese communities.

Although Cantonese shares some vocabulary with Mandarin (the dominant and official language of China), the two varieties are mutually unintelligible because of differences in pronunciation, grammar and sentence structure. One notable difference being how the spoken word is written; both languages can be recorded verbatim, but the uniqueness of the dialect mean that a non-verbatim formalized written form is adopted, which is more similar to the Mandarin written form.

Here at CanSoc, we embrace and encourage the use of the Cantonese language, but also welcome those from different language and cultural backgrounds. We even have Cantonese classes for those who are interested to learn.
