High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Taiwanese Hokkien,
commonly known as Taiwanese, is the Hokkien dialect of Min Nan as
spoken by about 70% of the population of Taiwan. The largest ethnic
group in Taiwan, for which Hokkien is considered a native language,
is known as Hoklo or Holo. The correspondence between language and
ethnicity is generally true though not absolute, as some Hoklo
speak Hokkien poorly while some non-Hoklo speak Hokkien fluently.
Pe h-o -j (POJ) is a popular orthography for this language, and for
Hokkien in general. Taiwanese Hokkien is generally similar to Amoy.
Minor differences only occur in terms of vocabulary. Like Amoy,
Taiwanese Hokkien is based on a mixture of Zhangzhou and Quanzhou
speech. Due to the mass popularity of Hokkien entertainment media
from Taiwan, Taiwanese Hokkien has grown to become the more
influential Hokkien dialect of Min Nan, especially after 1980s.
