Evolution of Mandarin Aug 28, 2010

After Taiwan has been established as an independent nation, Mandarin Chinese evolves rather differently in China and Taiwan. Many Taiwan words are derived from Japanese during its occupation period. Technical Chinese terms of China changes less than its characters. Simplified Chinese characters is easier to write than Taiwan's Traditional Chinese. It is even easier than Japanese Kanji that started simplification after WW II. Chinese oversea remember dialects of local Chinese: Hokkian, Guangchao, Taechew, Mandarin etc. I guess that this cooperation of China and Taiwan, as well as progress in technology, will gradually standardize the Chinese language among its 1400 million population, even in foreign countries.
