Wuzhou Wu dialects (婺州話 or 務州片) are a group of Southern Wu dialects spoken in and around Jinhua in Zhejiang province. They are mutually intelligible with Taihu Wu to at least some degree. The dialect group is named after the ancient Wuzhou County that existed in modern-day Jinhua.


Jinhua is the chief and representative dialect of Wuzhou.
