Hey guys, I am doing a research on Anti-ELAB and I have some questions.
What is the role of Cantonese in Anti-ELAB? How Cantonese is being used in this social movement?
1. Creating a sense of identity
2. A unifying cause
Asking the effect on the movement Or are you asking how it is USED in protests ah?
Could be both! Thank you btw
u English speaker 定蝦我英文差呀Ching?
Cantonese is part of HKer's language identity and local consciousness. it acts as an opposition to putonghua and mainland Chinese culture, which is considered uncivilized in most aspects.
I study sociolinguistics and I just wrote sth on this as my term paper a few days ago, hope that helps
