Gan, Hakka and the Formation of Chinese Dialects by In Ho, Dah-an

The author argues that Hakka and southern Gan are sister dialects, as they share several innovations not found elsewhere; that they arose out of the Chinese dialect spoken in central Jiangxi in Song times, a stratified dialect which included a non-Chinese substratum, probably Miao-Yao; an archaic layer; and a more recent layer with an important Late Middle Chinese component. It is claimed that the linguistic boundary between southern Gan and Hakka arose secondarily due to the effect of an old administrative and geographical boundary. It is also argued that Hakka devoicing took place in the south, when Hakka was in contact with the MiaoYao language She, and that the old dialect of the city of Ganzhou may have played an important role in the formation of Hakka.

4.Distribution Characteristics of Hakka Dialects in Hunan Province: Discussion on “Coastal-Inland” Migration Route

Abstract: Under the background of modernization and globalization, dialects have declined. Dialect is the carrier of regional culture and the important sign and content of regional cultural identity. The loss of dialect means the lack of regional culture. Therefore, the study of dialects is of great significance. In this paper, the spatial smoothing tool of GIS and Floating Catchment Area (FCA) are used to study the distribution of Hakka dialect in Hunan Province. The research shows that the Hakka dialects in Hunan are mainly distributed in the eastern and southern border areas of Hunan Province, especially in the southeast. There is no distribution of Hakka dialects in the central, northern and western areas.
