questions about Chinese dialects or topolects

Any questions relating to Chinese dialects or topolects other than Mandarin or Cantonese should use this tag.

The word dialect, although often used incorrectly by linguistic standards, is the main term for varieties in Chinese (be it an actual dialect or a completely different language in itself). Here it can be defined as any non-standard language used in and around China. Further information can be found on Wikipedia.
