Hokkien
HOKKIEN /hɒˈkiɛn/ (from Chinese : 福建話; Pe̍h-ōe-jī : _Hok-kiàn-oē_) is a Southern Min dialect group spoken throughout Southeastern China , Taiwan and Southeast Asia , and by other overseas Chinese . Hokkien originated in southern Fujian , the Min-speaking province. It is closely related to Teochew , though there is limited mutual intelligibility , and is somewhat more distantly related to Hainanese and Leizhou dialect . Besides Hokkien, there are also other Min and Hakka dialects in Fujian province, most of which are not mutually intelligible with Hokkien. Hokkien historically served as the lingua franca amongst overseas Chinese communities of all dialects and subgroups in Southeast Asia, and remains today as the most spoken variety of Chinese in the region, including in Singapore , Malaysia , Indonesia , Philippines and some parts of Indochina (particularly Thailand, Laos and Cambodia)

Fuzhou Dialect
The FUZHOU DIALECT, (simplified Chinese : 福州话; traditional Chinese : 福州話; pinyin : _Fúzhōuhuà_; FR : _ Hók-ciŭ-uâ_ (help ·info )) also FUZHOUNESE, FOOCHOW or HOK-CHIU, is the prestige variety of the Eastern Min branch of Min Chinese spoken mainly in eastern Fujian province. Like many other varieties of Chinese , the Fuzhou dialect is dominated by monosyllabic morphemes which carry lexical tones , and has a mainly analytic syntax . While the Eastern Min branch that it belongs to is closer to Southern Min than to other Sinitic branches such as Mandarin or Hakka , they are still not mutually intelligible. Centered in Fuzhou City , the Fuzhou dialect covers eleven cities and counties: Fuzhou City Proper, Pingnan , Gutian , Luoyuan , Minqing , Lianjiang (including Matsu ), Minhou , Changle , Yongtai , Fuqing and Pingtan . It is also the second local language in many northern and middle Fujian cities and counties such as Nanping , Shaowu , Shunchang , Sanming and Youxi . Fuzhou dialect is also widely spoken in some regions abroad, especially in Southeastern Asian countries like Malaysia and Indonesia. The city of Sibu in Malaysia is called "New Fuzhou" due to the influx of immigrants there in the late 19th century and early 1900s
