Old Chinese pronunciations are far better preserved in southern Chinese
languages such as Cantonese, Hakka and Min. Mandarin is relatively much
younger. Until Song Dynasty or so, the dialect spoken in Nanjing was still
Wu, but has since become displaced by a dialect of the Jianghuai branch
of Mandarin. The shift from k- to j- in Jianghuai Mandarin
a hundred years ago, and in some isolated communities ending
still preserved. Among the southern Chinese languages, Cantonese, in
particular, has prevserved the voiced and unvoiced distinction through
high and low tones. Vietnamese, and to a lesser extent Thai, are similar to
Cantonese due to borrowing of vocabularies, in similar fashion
as the Korean language. I do, nevertheless, wonder if Korean and Vietnamese
were still written in Chinese characters in recent times,
have quite different opinion, given the fact that more than 50% of Korean
vocabularies are of Chinese origin.
