Wuxi dialect

Wuxi dialect (Simplified Chinese: 无锡话; Traditional Chinese: 無錫話; Pinyin: Wúxī huà) is a dialect of Wu. It is spoken in the city of Wuxi in Jiangsu province of China.

It has many similarities with the Shanghainese and Suzhou dialect. It is mutually intelligible with the Changzhou dialect to which it is most closely related. It is not at all mutually intelligible with Mandarin, China's official language.
