Central Plains or Zhongyuan Mandarin (simplified Chinese: 中原官话; traditional Chinese: 中原官話; pinyin: zhōngyuán guānhuà) is a variety of Mandarin Chinese spoken in the central part of Shaanxi, Henan, and southern part of Shandong.[2]

The archaic dialect of Peking opera is a form of Zhongyuan Mandarin.

Among Chinese Muslims, it is sometimes written in the Arabic alphabet.
