Haifeng dialect, Lufeng dialect or Hailufeng dialect is a dialect mostly spoken in Shanwei, Haifeng and Lufeng in Guangdong, China. It is a sub-dialect of Min Nan Chinese, and sometimes a sub-dialect of Teochew dialect.[1][2] Since some of the characters pronunciations in Haifeng dialect are different from that in Teochew dialect (due to different rhymes in both dialects), Haifeng dialect is sometimes considered to be independent of Teochew dialect.
