Subject: The Relationship between Putonghua and Mandarin Spoken in Taiwan


I am a Ph.D. student researching the linguistic relationship between 
Putonghua (Mandarin spoken in Mainland China) and Mandarin spoken in 
Taiwan. I would appreciate if anyone who has read articles relating to 
this area could inform me of the same. I would like to know what and 
how much has been down in relation to the aforsaid research. 

I would also appreciate if any of you could email me your intuition on 
the relationship between Putonghua and Mandarin spoken in Taiwan. Do 
you notice any differences between Putonghua and Mandarin spoken in 
Taiwan? If so, what are the differences you have noticed?

Thanks in advance for your favourable response.

Please forward me any information where I can obtain books on the vowels and
consonant pronunciation in the American and Canadian languages. I would be
highly appreciative if this information can be sent to me as soon as
possible.


Thank you
