Hui Chinese Traditional Chinese 徽語 Simplified Chinese 徽语 Hanyu Pinyin Huī Yu Transcriptions Mandarin - Hanyu Pinyin Huī Yu Alternative Chinese name Traditional Chinese 徽州話 Simplified Chinese 徽州话 Transcriptions Mandarin - Hanyu Pinyin Huīzhōu Huà Huizhou or Hui, is a division of Chinese. Hui is spoken over a small area compared to other Chinese varieties: in and around the historical region of Huizhou (for which it is named), in about ten or so mountainous counties in southern Anhui, plus a few more in neighbouring Zhejiang and Jiangxi. Despite its small size, Hui displays a very high degree of internal variation. Nearly every county has its own distinct dialect unintelligible to a speaker a few counties away. It is for this reason that bilingualism and multilingualism are common among speakers of Hui. Like all other varieties of Chinese, there is plenty of dispute as to whether Hui is a language or a dialect. See Varieties of Chinese for the issues surrounding this dispute.
