The Leshan dialect (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Lèshānhuà; Sichuanese Standard Chinese: No2san1hua4; local pronunciation: [nʊʔ355xuɑ224]) is the Sichuanese dialect of the city of Leshan and is a variety of Minjiang. It preserves old southern (Ba-Shu) features lost in other Sichuanese dialects and is very different from the dialects of most other cities in the province of Sichuan, which are more typically Mandarin.


There are a total of 20 initials in the Leshan dialect.[1]
