3rd Most populous province?
According to the Times World Atlas and a number of other sources Sichuan has the largest population of any province in China with about 109,980,000 million people - a lot more than the 86,730,000 cited in this article. I have seen other sources which give a figure in the 80 millions. Does anyone have any explanation for these disparities?
- Don't forget a fair-sized chunk of Sichuan was split off as Chongqing municipality in 1997. Your reference probably predates that. -- Curps 02:14, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Yep.. Sichuan was the most populous province of China until the establishment of Chongqing municipality. -- ran (talk) 02:35, Mar 5, 2005 (UTC)
Could someone add information about the Sìchuān dialect please? --LakeHMM 04:51, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

- Very well done! Thanks so much. --LakeHMM 21:41, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
Mongke Khan is not died in sichuan,he died in hechuan chongqing
1259-1264 On their way to attack the Song city of Hezhou, hundreds, including Mongke, die. In 1260 the Mongols suffer their first major defeat near Ain Jalut against the Mamluks. Kublai becomes their next khan in 1264. form: http://www.royalalbertamuseum.ca/vexhibit/genghis/timeline.htm

- Correct. The BBC broke the story too. See here for info from Reuters. Not much info has been released yet. ┌Joshii┐└chat┘ 06:59, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
What's up with the tone indicators in the wade-giles spelling? I never saw Wade-Giles with tone indicators, and the WP site on this Romanization system says nothing about tones either. What is the merit of having this romanization here anyway? Poastal Pinyin seems reasonable enough, but Szu-chuan and Szu-ch'uan seem to yield significantly fewer hits on google scholar or google books. Yaan (talk) 17:10, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Wade-Giles was a very popular form of Chinese romanization up until the relatively recent use of pinyin. Almost no major modern literature uses the old, inaccurate, postal spellings. The tone marks are essential for anyone wanting to correctly pronounce the words since Chinese is a tonal language. See Wade-Giles#Punctuation for detail. Rincewind42 (talk) 15:46, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
