Sample text

There is also considerable variation in Hong Kong written Chinese, running from full literary Chinese to the equivalent of Cantonese written in characters. Educated Chinese immediately recognize the latter as deviant, and tend to be highly critical of the popular press in which it occurs. English As noted previously English is the usual language of only one per cent of people in Hong Kong, although approximately a quarter of the population claim some proficiency. As one would expect, given Hong Kong's colonial status the official norm is British English.

I have, however, heard persons with a low educational level mixing in the occasional word of English when speaking to someone of a similar level of education, but never when speaking to someone with a higher level of education (as the cross-tabulation reveals). One could speculate that this occasional word of English is "showing off" by displaying some knowledge of English, but the speaker would naturally avoid using English with someone who might reveal the limited nature of that knowledge. The single use of English by a secondary educated local Chinese occurred when a student was singing Western "pop" songs with her brother.

The study of language attitudes in this setting is of evident interest. In fact this may be the best studied area in language research in Hong Kong. There have been a number of attitude studies, nearly all using Chinese students in secondary schools or universities, examining attitudes towards English and Chinese. This is useful for the purposes of this book, although the results of these studies obviously cannot be taken as necessarily representing the attitudes of the wider community. The first published study to examine attitudes in depth was Cheng, Shek, Tse & Wong (1973).
