First of all I would like to thank this community for this wonderful collection of knowledge on the minnan dialect. This is truly a wonderful community and a most helpful resource.
A quick background of me, Australian born to a Father who was born in Xiamen then moved in his teens to Singapore, and a mother of Hokchiew background. I'm able to converse in hokkien in basic and family matters, but not much out side of that (i see all these wonderful proverbs here that I can only make sense of with my dad reading beside me). I struggle to understand the varieties of hokkien outside of singaporean & e-mng (which to me share more similarities than any other branch of hokkien), and ciangciu (my grandpa's dialect). I guess then I would like to broaden my knowledge and understanding of all branches of hokkien, to be able to truly appreciate what a beautiful and rich language it is.
Now I dont know if this is an appropriate topic to come to this forum about, but I was wondering if anyone knew the name of this song
Code: Select all
Thanks in Advance!
