Localization (本土化, POJ: pún-thó·-hòa, Pinyin: Běntǔ huà) is a political term used by advocates of Taiwan independence to support their view of Taiwan as not part of China.
The roots of the localization movement began during the Japanese era in Taiwan 1895 to 1945, when groups organized to lobby the imperial government for greater Taiwanese autonomy and home rule.
On the mainland, the PRC government has officially adopted a neutral policy on Taiwanese localization and does not consider the localization movement to be either a violation of its One China Policy or equivocal to the independence movement.

 Taiwan independence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This movement is supported by the pan-green coalition on Taiwan and opposed to different degrees by the pan-blue coalition and the People's Republic of China, which view Chinese reunification as a positive eventuality.
The movement is internationally significant because a formal declaration of independence will lead to a military confrontation not only between the People's Republic of China and Taiwan, but could also provoke the intervention from the United States and Japan in defense of their protectorate.
Between 1949 and 1991, the official position of the ROC government on Taiwan was that it was the legitimate government of all of China and used this position as justification for authoritarian measures such as the refusal to vacate the seats held by delegates elected on the mainland in 1947 for the Legislative Yuan.

 Desinicization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is mainly used by groups which support Chinese reunification to describe what they are opposed to, and to distinguish it from the Taiwanese localization movement.
The term exists to emphasize that pro-unification groups are not opposed to the development of a Taiwanese identity or local symbols such as language, but are opposed to viewing such an identity and symbols as separate from a broader Chinese identity.
Many Taiwanese localization movement supporters in Taiwan also take recent Seoul city mayor's move to change Seoul city's Chinese official name from 漢城 (read as Hancheng in Chinese, Hanseong in Korean) to Shou'er (首爾) in 2005 as a model of desinicization.

 Republic of Taiwan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Republic of Taiwan (臺灣共和國; Taiwanese: Tâi-oân Kiōng-hô-kok) is a goal of some supporters of Taiwan independence in creating a Taiwanese state unambiguously separate from China, covering (at most) the areas currently controlled by the Republic of China (i.e., Taiwan, Penghu, Quemoy and Matsu Islands).
Initially, the Taiwanese Independence movement began as an attempt to overthrow the Republic of China government and replace it with a native Republic of Taiwan government.
The new movement claims that the current situation of Taiwan being ruled by a government officially named the Republic of China creates confusion internationally with China, and is the principle obstacle in preventing Taiwan from becoming a normal nation, in the sense of participating in international organizations such as the United Nations.

The general situation is one of dialect continuum where one can understand perfectly people speaking the local dialect and that the intelligibility decreases as the the speaker comes from more and more distant regions.
The local dialect is generally considered more intimate and is used among close family members and friends and in everyday conversation within the local area.
Knowing the local dialect is of considerable social benefit and most Chinese who permanently move to a new area will attempt to pick up the local dialect.

Taiwan independence is a political movement whose goal is to create a sovereign, independent Republic of Taiwan out of the current Republic of China.
This vision was represented through a number of symbols such as the use of Min-nan in opposition to the school taught Mandarin language.
Opinion polls suggest that the vast majority of Taiwanese support the "status quo" which is to leave Taiwan's status exactly the way that it is. One advantage of this option is that it avoids the necessity of defining exactly what Taiwan's status really is.

 Taiwan independence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Taiwan independence (台獨;, pinyin: Táidú) is a political movement whose goal is to create a sovereign, independent Republic of Taiwan out of the lands currently administered by the Republic of China.
In more recent years, the focus of the movement has changed to that of insuring the sovereign and dignity of Taiwan against the possibility of rule by the People's Republic of China, and as such has been more willing to take on the symbols of the Republic of China.
Since the late 1990s, supporters of Taiwan independence have argued that since Taiwan is already independent, a formal declaration of that fact is unnecessary, except in the case of an immediate attack by the People's Republic of China.

This results in the common situation where A can understand B, B can understand C, but A cannot understand C. The linguistic diversity is particularly pronounced in southern variations such as Min, in which two towns which are five kilometers from each other can have types of speech that are completely unintellegible with one another.
In southern China where the difference between Standard Mandarin and the local dialect is particularly pronounced, well-educated Chinese are generally fluent in Mandarin, and most people have at least a good passive knowledge of it, in addition to being native speakers of the local dialect.
The local dialect (be it nonstandard Mandarin or non-Mandarin altogether) is generally considered more intimate and is used among close family members and friends and in everyday conversation within the local area.
