The Future of Cantonese: Current Trends.
Whelpton, John
Hong Kong Journal of Applied Linguistics, v4 n1 p43-60 Jun 1999
Examines how the evolution of Cantonese dialect is continually influenced by contact with English and Putonghua, as well as by the internal dynamic of language change. Concludes that the wish to preserve a Hong Kong cultural identity distinct from that of mainland China, may be a factor in also retaining a unique linguistic identity. (Author/VWL)
