Danzhou dialect (simplified Chinese: 儋州话; traditional Chinese: 儋州話; pinyin: Dānzhōu huà), locally known as Xiang hua (Chinese: 乡话; pinyin: xiāng huà; literally: "village speech"), is a Chinese variety of uncertain affiliation spoken in the area of Danzhou in northwestern Hainan, China.[2] It was classified as Yue in the Language Atlas of China,[3][4] but in more recent work is treated as an unclassified southern variety.[5]
