I remember somebody posted this question before and vaguely remembered there is such a dictionary being suggested. Is there any online resources where I can find the different expressions of Taiwanese Chinese and mainland Chinese? Thanks in advance.

Try this Chinese dictionary. It features the differences in the common expressions as used in China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, though I don't know how good it is.

Thank you! Mar 29, 2008

Hi Shirley, thank you so much for the links. I am now asking my friend to check out the dictionary for me. I looked through some examples given in those links and am just curious to ask you whether some differences are so much that they are not readily understood by people of both sides of the Straits. For me, 幼儿园and幼稚园should be understandable to both sides. There are many phrases like that. I know the computer terminology is quite different, but for daily expressions, the difference may not be that great, what do you think?

Colloquial expressions differ a lot Mar 31, 2008

I do believe the differences in technical terms can easily been found in dictionaries and glossaries. Accordingly, they are not so difficult to manage. However, some daily expressions, particularly colloquial expressions, do differ greatly among different Chinese-speaking communities and are the most difficult to handle by someone who has neither resided in nor exposed to a particular Chinese-speaking community.
