Northern Min (simplified Chinese: 闽北; traditional Chinese: 閩北; pinyin: Mǐnběi), is a group of mutually intelligible dialects of Min spoken in Nanping Prefecture of northwestern Fujian.
The Chinese varieties of Fujian province were traditionally divided into Northern and Southern groups. However, dialectologists now divide Min more finely. By this narrower definition, Northern Min covers the dialects of Shibei (石陂, in Pucheng County), Chong'an (崇安, in Wuyishan City), Xingtian (兴田, in Wuyishan City), Wufu (五夫, in Wuyishan City), Zhenghe (in Zhenghe County), Zhenqian (镇前, in Zhenghe County), Jianyang and Jian'ou.
