 Taiwanese, Mandarin, and Taiwan's language situation
We shall examine the processes whereby Taiwanese children are weaned away from their mother tongue and acquire in its stead a second language for the purpose of becoming literate.
Even when there are fairly well-established ways of writing Taiwanese words, it is easy to demonstrate that the characters chosen for them are often "wrong" in the sense that they are arbitrary homophones or near homophones, and that their meanings are completely irrelevant.
The irrational fury and uncomprehending linguistic fallacies that pervade this indignant denunciation of the mere suggestion of written Taiwanese are clear proof of the kinds of intimidation and pressures that have been brought to bear against writing in the regional vernaculars in China.

 sci.lang FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Linguistics can often supply facts which help people arrive at a recommendation or value judgement, but the recommendation or value judgement is not part of linguistic science itself.
Most linguists regard these hypotheses as having a grossly insufficient empirical foundation, and argue that comparisons at that depth are not possible using available methods of historical linguistics.
It should be emphasized that linguists do not consider some dialects superior to others-- though speakers of the language may do so; and linguists do study people's attitudes toward language, since these have a strong effect on the development of language.

Taiwanese may neglect the questions asked by the e-pal; however, they frequently ask personal questions, which may not be based on what the e-pals have said, but on what they are interested in and on their intuition as a Chinese talking in homogeneous Chinese society.
At least 15% of Taiwanese think that avoiding answering questions to the "call for an e-pal" is due to their speculation that the caller asks questions for politeness, not for information; a question for the sake of politeness can be neglected.
Taiwanese replies were recorded in both Mandarin and English because language might be a factor in the ratio of questions answered.

The broad academic concept of "Mandarin" encompasses a large number of linguistically related dialects, some less mutually intelligible than others, and is very rarely used outside of academic circles as a self-description.

 Taidu advocates against Academic Freedom - Asia Finest Discussion Forum
The Academia Sinica is backtracking with its neglect of the Taiwanese language, and it does not respect the local culture," said Chang Shu-fen (張淑芬), chairwoman of the Taiwan Mother Tongue Education Association (台灣母語教育學會).
"The Institute of Linguistics has distributed funds for the study of the Taiwanese language next year, but since our budget plan has not listed the budget distribution in detail, the funds for the Taiwanese language studies are not reflected in the budget plan," Lee said.
The academy already has linguistic diversity, the politician in question doesn't want more of it, she simply wants to dilute the mainlander presence and promote Hokklo Taiwaneseness at the same time.

Its success in soothing the tormented Taiwanese psyche has greatly eased the hidden sub-ethnic tension between Islanders and the Mainlanders, hitherto considered as the alien conqueror.
