Do you know how many girls from outside of Shanghai have emigrated to shanghai in the last decade when Sh opens its door to those people that swarmed over to make fortune there?

Who do you refer to when you mention Sh girls...? Local girls or those girls who rush to Sh to pick up 'gold'...!

Wow.....

I didn't expect so many replies in just two days!

Well, Defining Shanghai girls, at least they speak Shanghainese dialect. By the way, one thing I don't get it is Shanghai is the only city where local people feel superior when they just SPEAK Shanghai dialect. If you don't speak Shanghai dialect, well, better to speak English or any other foreign language, don't speak mandarin.....once you start speaking mandarin, "lots of" shanghainese (girls) would feel they are pround being able to speak Shanghai dialect.

Cantonese people don't feel pround for speaking cantonese than mandarin, simple, it's just language and dialect, a tool to talk by. There is nothing better or worse in using which language, but "lots of" shanghainese, or should I say "lots of people in Shanghai" make a difference between "shanghai dialect and mandarin". Speaking Shanghai dialect is more pround than speaking mandarin.

If you speak mandarin with Cantonese, they will try to catch up with you and try to speak mandarin to communicate better with you even though they don't speak well. Their accent sounds cute and lovely though.

It's dangourous that people are divided by themselves into superior goups and inferior goups. The concept of equality is rooted in US constitution, in US citizens, but not in Shanghai, or more accurately, not in lots of shanghai people.

As a matter of fact, Chinese people more or less has all the features we see from shanghainese. It's just because it's Shanghai so more attention will be paid to it. I wish someday, no matter who you are, no matter how rich or poor you are, no matter what dialect you are speaking, when we start talking, we can treat everyone the same way, polite and civilized, I mean from heart, not the surface.

Respect, that's the word I want to say. People respect you not because of the language you speak with, but the attitude you speak with.

Ok, go back to our story, defining shanghai girls.

Well, that's hard to define. When you feel they are, they are.

I tried a few times editing my misspelling " pround" to "proud", it just didn't work. Something wrong with the system?
