Guanzhong dialect (Chinese: 关中话; pinyin: Guānzhōng huà), is a dialect of Zhongyuan Mandarin spoken in Shaanxi's Guanzhong region, including the prefecture-level city of Xi'an.[1] Since people from Xi'an are considered the prototypical Guanzhong speakers, Guanzhong dialect is sometimes referred to as Shaanxi hua 陕西话 or Xi'an hua 西安话. However, the dialects spoken in northern and southern Shaanxi differ substantially from that of Guanzhong, and the Hanzhong dialect has more similarities with Sichuanese Mandarin than with Central Plains Mandarin.
