Man or Mango (simplified Chinese: 蛮话; traditional Chinese: 蠻話; pinyin: Mánhuà; literally: 'Man speech'), also known as Manjiang (simplified Chinese: 蛮讲; traditional Chinese: 蠻講; pinyin: Mánjiǎng), is an Eastern Min dialect spoken in Taishun and Cangnan counties of Wenzhou prefecture in Southeast Zhejiang province.
As a dialect of Eastern Min, Manjiang is very distant from major Chinese varieties such as Mandarin and Cantonese, and displays very significant elements of a substratal indigenous language, perhaps belonging to the Austroasiatic or Tai–Kadai language families.
