I'd also say, there are still many languages in China which are not considered as dialects of Chinese, such as Zhuang, Tibetan.

@trideceth12 Europe is divided into several parts, so they don't want to say "my language is a dialect of XX language".

When you say "Chinese". It usually means Mandarin. There are so many dialects of Chinese, you even can't know which is the traditional one.

comment What is the classical Chinese meaning of 或?
In fact I would recommend 《辭海》《辭源》《康熙字典》 and 《王力古漢語詞典》 instead of 《古代漢語詞典》. I'd say 《王力古漢語詞典》 is excellent!
