Shanghainese and other variations of Wu

Post by mavericker » Fri May 11, 2007 5:25 pm

Hello. what is the difference between Shanghainese and other variations and dialects of Wu? Is it basically the same, or is it like regionalistic Wu?

It's a "regionistic" Wu.

Wu is an umbrella term for one of the seven major dialects of China, which is spoken in many cities/provinces to the east of China. - Secrets of learning Chinese easily, quickly and inexpensively
