Abstract

We determined the mutual intelligibility between Shanghainese and Cantonese by isolated word tests (Subjective measure) with the recording of two native speakers in the age range of 31-50. In addition, we assessed the linguistic background of the listeners with questionnaires who are also the test takers. We then examine the dialect words in the recording with objective measures (lexical similarity, phonological correspondence) to understand our conclusion drawn from our results as the mutual intelligibility is low and the intelligibility is asymmetrical.
