     Longyan Min

Longyan Min (龍岩閩語), is a variety of Min Nan Chinese spoken in the Longyan region of the southern Chinese province of Fujian. The Longyan Min people had settled in the region from southern part of Fujian Province as early as the Tang dynasty period (618–907). Longyan Min has in the past been influenced by the Hakka language due to large numbers of Hakka migrants into the region. As a result, it has limited intelligibility with other Min Nan dialects, such as Teochew and HokkienTaiwanese. Today, Longyan Min is predominantly spoken in Longyan's Xinluo District and Zhangping City . Longyan Hakka on the other hand is spoken in Changting County, Yongding County, and Shanghang County.
