Fujian gov’t proposes rules against local languages, certain uses of Pinyin

The government of China’s Fujian Province is calling for official suppression of the use of languages other than Mandarin, though Mandarin is not native to that region, and for Chinese characters to be seen as more important than Pinyin and foreign languages.

The scope of this is about as broad as I’ve ever seen. The basics are roughly these:

  • Thou shalt not write in Sinitic languages other than Mandarin and in other than officially standard characters.
  • Thou shalt not even speak thy mother tongue, if it be not Mandarin, at work in the broadly defined public sphere other than in a few limited contexts.
  • Thou shalt have no other script lest thou also employ Chinese characters, which must be made larger than all others.
