Traditional War II


The idea of this pattern comes from a subgroup of the Han Chinese people, Hakka (Mandarin: Kèjiā). They are commonly found in the southern Chinese provinces, such as Guangdong, Jiangxi, and Fujian in China. In Taiwan, Hakka people comprise about 20% of the population and are descended largely from Guangdong: they form the second largest ethnic group on the island. Taiwan's Hakka are concentrated in Hsinchu City and Hsinchu County, Miaoli County, and around Chungli in Taoyuan County, and Meinong in Kaohsiung County, and in Pingtung County, with smaller presences in Hualian and Taitung County. In recent decades many Hakka have moved to the largest metropolitan areas, including Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung.
Many people in Taiwan are of mixed Hoklo, Hakka, and formosan aboriginal heritage. Approximately half of the population of Hakka in Taiwan also speaks Taiwanese, and it is highly likely that many Taiwanese-speaking households were descendants of Hakka families in Taiwan who lost their language a few generations back because of the lack of practical environment.

下半部長得好像拳頭喔,是故意的嗎?

我家樓下的雜貨店老闆也是客家人,但是處在閩南人較多的環境裡,為了做生意他的台語也很溜,但客家人節儉的美德依然不變。

耶~你不講我沒有想到它像拳頭耶!那不是故意的,應該是我學藝不精。。

但現在好像還蠻多客家人不會講客家話的,要是小孩子從小沒有跟長輩住在一起,很多根本無從學起
