You must not imagine that if Comrade Xiaoping Mandarin Sha Yangzi, if Chiang Kai-shek, speaking in fluent Mandarin curse "Mother West fart", you will find slide Ji funny.
Recently, SARFT spokesman Zhu Hong, said in an interview for the TV use of language, norms, except local opera-chip should be mainly Mandarin, generally not allowed to use non-standard dialect and Mandarin; major revolution and historical themes TV series, children's television show that television and other topics as well as publicity and education all you want to use Putonghua; drama leaders appear to use the language of Mandarin.
I do not know why the development of such provisions, the intention. This provides some hard to understand.
Some children as a topic of public education materials and television programs, require the use of Putonghua, we can understand. Introduced early on in our country's policy of promoting Putonghua, if some children's themes and public education programs use the Mandarin television special shot, can play a great role in guiding and promoting role.
But if some great revolution and historical themes in TV shows and TV are all leaders to use the language of Putonghua, then can not help but think that some insist the. Revolution and the historical theme of the film, the first requirement is to respect history and facts. Because, at certain historical period, genre is determined by the environment at that time. For example my early days, many leaders do not speak Mandarin, all with the local dialect. We can imagine that, if taken when the subject matter, the actors all spoke fluent Mandarin, the audience will certainly understand the true background can not do that era, and some people who know little about history, will not be able to more clearly understanding of history. Can you imagine Chairman Mao stood on Tiananmen Square in Mandarin shouting "Long live the people" will be sawed it? Certainly can not imagine!
Moreover, a number of local opera, using dialect performances, to better performance out of the local characteristics. Because each place has different language and culture of each place, if the unified standard, things will result in the loss of local culture. Extensive and profound Chinese culture, dialect is also an important cultural heritage. Therefore, the appropriate use of dialect is not only a respect for local culture, the main thing is a kind of Chinese traditional culture heritage.
Putonghua is a good thing, but not ruthless, we must respect history and facts!
