  Standard Mandarin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The grammar of Standard Mandarin is standardized to the body of modern works written in Vernacular Chinese, which in practice follows the tradition of the Mandarin group of dialects most closely with some notable exceptions.
However, all of these standard dialects were probably unknown outside the educated elite; even among the elite, pronunciations may have been very different, as the unifying factor of all Chinese dialects, Classical Chinese, was a written standard, not a spoken one.
Curiously the use of standard Mandarin in the 20th century has supplanted the use of pidgin English which was used as a common language in some parts of southern China in the 18th and 19th century.

Intel's EDA vendor partnerships come at a critical juncture, because the Accellera standards organization is close to standardizing both a formal assertion language and an assertion library.

That company is helping select a language as part of Accellera's VFV committee, but believes efforts to standardize an assertion library are "premature," said Tom Anderson, vice president of applications engineering at 0-In.
