Hello, Welcome Here!
Who are the Hokkiens?
Hokkien is the largest Chinese dialect spoken
among Chinese groups in Malaysia. Originally,
the Hokkien people were the descendants of
the earliest Chinese settlers on the Peninsula who
originated mainly from Fujian (also called Min)
Province in China. Presently, the majority of Chinese
in Malaysia, no matter their ethnic background, use
Hokkien as a trade language to converse with other
Chinese in particular regions.
However, most Chinese in these particular regions
no longer speak a pure form of the various Fujian
dialects. Today they speak a Hokkien which contains
a number of loanwords from Malay and other Chinese
The Hokkien dialect is the lingua franca for the
Chinese in Johor, Malacca, Penang, Kedah, Perlis,
Terengganu, Kelantan, and Sarawak. As such, the
Hokkien as a trade language is the majority Chinese
language in these states.
