Penang Hokkien Dialect Conversations
Tan Choon Hoe
The waves of Chinese immigrants to Penang and elsewhere naturally brought their home languages with them. In this book the author guides the reader through the idiosyncratic version of Hokkien that established itself wherever the Chinese community predominated in the city. Although basically still the original Fujian dialect, as this humourous introduction demonstrates, the language has now taken on a life of its own with borrowings from English, Malay and any other flavour that takes the speaker's fancy. Near Fine Paperback. First Edition. 189 pages with several cartoons.
